Cloning Tables? (3 posts)

    I have three different subdomains' blogs running off a single WordPress database. The blog content on each is meant to be different so a different table prefix is assigned to each subdomain.

    User registration is required for posting. I don't want users to have to register three times: just register once and be a registered user of each subdomain's blog.

    I had the brilliant (?) idea that I could just create symbolic links for the users and usermeta table to that for the main subdomain. I then set ownership and group permissions to mysql. All would then work... or so I thought. It doesn't.

    I get the "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page." when logged in as admin (which is a registered user in each subdomain). I can access each users table's data without problems in webmin.

    Anyone know how to get this to work right in WordPress? My suspicion is that I missing the obvious answer here.

    I'd start with a bit of reading...
    (and searching before posting)

    Thanks for the help... and pointing to a more relevant topic. Works much better searching "same users" rather than some of the other harebrained ideas I had.

    The solution there didn't work. I still get "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page." when I try to access wp-admin/users.php. On the wp-admin page the dashboard links are gone.

    At this point, unless someone is kind enough to point me towards an easy solution, I'm about ready to assume what I want is not possible and move on.
