Support » Installing WordPress » Install wordpress with plugins and preconfigured

  • Hi!
    I have a little problem. In the last 4 weeks, i had to install over 20 wordpress blogs. All with the same plugins, all with the same administration user, the same paths and so on..

    Currently, i first upload a normal wordpress installation, install it..
    Second i upload my changed stuff (plugins, etc)..
    But that is so much, that i allways have to upload the whole stuff again..

    My question is, if there is any possibility, to say wordpress while installation..
    Install Plugin X;Y;Z – and activate
    Install THEME W
    Create User abc;email;blabla
    Is that possible?

    I would say the best way to do this would be to create one blog that is exactly as you wish.
    Then export the sql file from the database and download the complete WP install.

    To do what you want, you would restore the db (NOT install it), upload the files and then do 2 things:
    – change the wp-config.php details
    – use phpmyadmin to alter the site-url / home values

    That should work…….

    I haven’t really thought this through, but maybe others could expand on it. You could try taking a backup of the SQL database of a blog you have set up, then change the blog URI, table prefix etc and then upload it back into the database. You would still have to edit the config file for each install, the database would have the plugin settings etc already. You would then be able to just keep uploading copies of your wordpress folder (with all the plugins and stuff already included).

    Update:- What Podz said 🙂

    Thanks so far!
    I have another question ;)..
    I’m a MySQL database dummy 😉 Is there any way, to backup and rename all the fields in the database, without creating rubbish in phpmyadmin? Cause I’m just to stupid to use that tool 😉
