MultiBlog and SQLite (7 posts)

    Just to let anyone know, that may be interested, I've made some extensive hacks to v1.2 for running multiple instances of WordPress from a single codebase, and also managed to get SQLite _mostly_ working. There are some notes on the Wiki under MultiBlog. I'd be very interested to know if anyone else is interested in running multiple blogs using SQLite, and particularly so under PHP5.

    There are some notes on the Wiki at http://wiki.wordpress.org/MultiBlog and the Subversion repository and a tarball are at http://multipress.goldcoast.org.
    I've just spent another session and modified maybe 99% of the links and tried out maybe 25% of it's functionality, which mostly seems to work. I've also added the SQLite hacks I made.

    Oooh I was thinking of trying something like this. I want to have one database for everything but be able to take one catagory and split it off to a different page. Without having two sets of wordpress installed. I have a main site. And I want my subsite to have one of the users be able to post to only that part if he chooses.

    Ah, so you want two different sites to mostly share admin and data info except for a single category. The only way I can think of doing something like this would be to use the code I am developing and have two separate instances use the same database but create different groups and hack a small amount of code so that either group "belonged" to a particular site. Actually, this could probably be done with the regular WordPress anyway and still have a different theme for the alternate site.
    My hack provides for a completely separate installation, both database backend and look n feel, off the same PHP code base... but, it's still very rough and needs a lot more work before being publically usable.

    Sounds amazing! I'm excited. :-)

  7. If you're excite about this, then you'll be really excited to know that the "multiple instances of WordPress from a single codebase" aspect of this thread has been done with WP v1.5 and tutorials have been written in the fifteen months since this thread was last active.
