Multiple copies of the same blog? (10 posts)

    Is it possible to have multiple copies of 1 blog? For example, I post in one place, and then the database automatically gets copied over to another URL. So in effect I could have 2 or 3 copies of the blog avaialable under diffferent URL's. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

    May be just use the same DB (same DB adress, same DB name, same table prefix) for all blogs?

    How would I do that? Would I just copy everything from the 1 install to the other?

  4. Actually, just use the same wp-config.php for each blog.

    I'm not sure I understand. Any chance you could direct me to a tutorial or something?

    Thanks!

  6. When you install a WordPress blog, you have to set up a wp-config.php file which has the login information for your database. To make another copy of that same blog, upload the WordPress files into a different directory, but use the same wp-config.php file.

    I copied the wp-config file to a new URL, and installed all the file, but it didn't work.

    It says: Error establishing a database connection!

    Any ideas?

    Are they on the same computer?

    You may have a database permissions problem if they're not.

    If they aren't on the same computer, it's something you'll need to use the right mysql grant for.
