Multiple copies of the same blog?

  • 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?

    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!

    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.

    errrmm couldnt you just get the domain names to all link to the same blog…

    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.

    no way! you wil have a problem with the siteurl of the database! won’t work just like that…
