Multiple Joomla Sites

Postby carltonb » 12. March 2007 00:28

I have 4 joomla sites.

I understand that I need to upload joomla to the htdocs directory, or do I need to create 4 subdirectories under htdocs and upload joomla to each.

Thanks

I would think that you need 4 folders "htdocs/1" "htdocs/2" ect and then you would need to make 4 accounts/users in phpmyadmin to keep them apart.

But this is just a guess from what you stated above.

Create 4 directories under the htdocs directory.
Specify the directory location of each site when you set-up the virtual hosts.
- Set-up the vhost.
- Add the domain name to your Windows hosts file.
- Restart the computer and away you go.

Only need one user in phpMyAdmin for local testing.
Only need multiple users if others will have access.
Easiest is to set-up a different database for each site.
Again, if only local, easy to use same DB username and password
I make the directory name and the database name the same to easily keep them all straight.
Currently have 9 local Joomla sites set-up like this.
Works great.
