Re: TRUE Multisites hack.... at last!

It woul be nice to develop a way so that it was possible to install the same module several times in the same site and each one could have a separate set of tables.

Even better,

develop the ability to set a different theme to a particular module. So you could change info on the fly and may be it is not needed to make many copies of the same site.

That's what we mean by "cloning" modules: changing names and module's prefix tables in order to install a module several times.

Take a look at this site for a demo. I don't know if the webmaster made a tutorial to explain how he did this (shame on me )

Happy Xoopsing

Does anyone that has the Multisite 'hack' working;
specifically seperate sites with seperate content sharing user tables, willing to post some instructions for those of us that are not very familiar with PHP?

I've tried all of the suggestions and only get errors and blank pages, and think that I am incorrectly editing the database.php file.

help! please....

Thanks!

reynaldos edits return this (for me):

I have been looking over this information and have some questions. But first let me explain my situation.

I have two sites on different domains. I am really wanting to share the database tables for certain modules. Does this hack work across different domains or just subdomains?

Thanks,
mpowell

domain or host? I have been able to get XOOPS to share a database across domains, with seperate hosts, you'll just need to change the 'localhost' portion of the main file to point to the location of the database being used. It will make your site slow down a bit...and I've had some odd results...nothing horrible, but frustrating if you are a user of the site.

I'm trying to get www.site1.net to share users with www.site2.net
essentially different domains....
However, they are hosted on the same server, and are technically subdomains of the hosting account, with multiple domains parked on each subdomain folder.

If your not too opposed to starting over, or doing some database editing, this thread from Mith, lazybadger and Carnuke (Thank you gentlemen!) may be the way to go. It also addresses the issue of crossing domains/hosts when using two databases.
I have not tried it yet, but plan to over the next couple of days.

FYI: up until this point, I have had to leave a small disclaimer added to the registration page informing my members that it will be another 24 hours before their user id's will work on the other domains. Once I set that in place, my life turned into database puzzle master...I come home everyday, suck the user tables I need to share out of the database, edit the prefix, and the insert them into the other sites tables. Needless to say, an alternative to this will make my day!

Will the posted hacks work for Latest XOOPS 2.0.10?

Where is the code for mainfile.php of Reynaldo's Hack?

I never got reynaldos to work, or was able to get any support with it.

The above thread is what I am using, but the sites are hosted at the same location, and the sub-site is a sub-directory of the main site. Not exactly what I wanted, but working in the meantime.
