Just to give everyone an update – I’m making good progress on this and have multiple installations working (duplicated DB tables with a single set of files using a bit of mod_rewrite magic). Just fiddling with the user settings at the moment – it’s a bit more tricky due to the fact I’m using the WP user table rather than individual user tables per DB.
Thanks – that’s very interesting and useful, I’ll do some reading up and experiments over the next couple of days and let you know how it goes.
I’m going to leave this topic as unresolved just in case somebody else has some input or ideas
Missed your question there about sharing info – I’d like members to be able to access all the forums regardless of which one they registered with
so maybe a route would be having one members table and then create new tables for each forum instance?
Ideally I’d like to have one instance of the php scripts and perhaps with a bit of .htaccess rewriting let the script know which db it should access (so its fine to create multiple dbs but it would be best to have one instance of the forum so that any security updates etc can be applied much more quickly)
