So i'm stucked a little XD
So some tech info first.
I'm runnig Ubuntu server, with Virtualmin server manager on top of it. The thing is that wirtualmanager has the capabilities to create what i need, but i still don;t have much knowledge on what should i do. Also i'll be creating sub-domains for child networks manually adding a sub-servers to parent-server. BUT the sub-servers creation is storing all the new data and "/"-path to "/home/parentserver/domains/subserver1/public_html" etc. so WP-multi-network plugin is not an option, cuz i can't understand what should i write in wp-config line that defines the root of new network, cuz the root of that child network implmented by the server as "/", so and parentserver is also "/" but they have different folders inside a parentserver. Oo
I'm trying to create a WP network with child WP networks. so it will look like this:
http://www.parentnetwork.com (WPMU installation with sub-dirs, maybe a buddypress also)
http://www.child1.parentnetwork.com (WPMU installation with sub-dirs)
http://www.child2.parentnetwork.com (WPMU installation with sub-dirs)
http://www.child3.parentnetwork.com (WPMU installation with sub-dirs)
All of this child networks should have their own wp-contents, and also they should have other blogs in them, in sub-dirs (not sub-domains!!):
Also as you can understand all the networks should share USERS database. so all the users from one network could easily post message crossnetwork, and crossblogs. Although somehow there should be crossnetwork linking, maybe in header-bar, so users could easily access at least networks (i mean that when viewing one network, users can click on top-menu and go to another network at least. and on that network top-bar should be links to other networks, and to it's own blogs.)
So i found some solutions, like defining per each wordpress installation a special user table, in this message http://wordpress.org/support/topic/wordpress-25-share-users-table#post-904597
but will it work for a bunch of networks?
How to share cookies i know, it should be defined like this in each network installation:
define('COOKIE_DOMAIN', ('.parentnetwork.com')); define('ADMIN_COOKIE_PATH', '/'); define('COOKIEPATH', false); define('SITECOOKIEPATH', false); define('COOKIEHASH', md5('http://parentnetwork.com'));
so the cookies will used from the parentnetwork.
So the two questions am i right by doing this or not, and second one how to implement crossnetwork linking?
Also will buddypress work only on mainnetwork or will it work on different networks, also if it will work not only mainnetwork, will it have different comments, groups and other stuff? or will it still share everything across the whole network of networks?
Thanks in advance.
some more info: i don't need to share any folders, they must be separated. i don't need sharing of comments, groups and other written data all over the network. Only users, cookies, and links to networks should be shared. XD
Thanks in advance one more time XD
