    Can someone tell me the steps for now on how to set 3 sites? Also, if it’s possible, can the 2 of the 3 be able to share some posts and don't have to write the same post twice?

    I have installed the wp, I’ve changed the "Table Prefix", I installed also the "WPMU Plugin Manager" and the "Multisite User Management". What do I have to do next?

  2. Did you activate MultiSite?

  3. http://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network

    do this. the table prefix and those two plugins are not needed.

    I want them to have separate domains something like this: http://www.home.com, http://www.car.com, not with sub domains or subdirectories

    Once you go through Create a Network and create the various sites you want, you can map any top-level domains to them with this plugin:

    ok. So, I have 3 domains(example: http://www.company.com, http://www.project1.com, http://www.project2.com)

    The domain wwww.company.com is the primary default cpanel/ftp access and is empty, still un-used. The http://www.project1.com is being used and is in joomla, http://www.project2.com is being used and is a wordpress site.

    1.To create a wordpress multisite do I have to start from the beginning a wordpress site in http://www.company.com?

    2. If I have to do mark 1, then what do I have to do with http://www.project2.com?

    3. What I want actually is from http://www.company.com to share all the plugins in all of the rest websites that I create or in some of them so I could save time in the updates and installs.In the link that you gave me I saw that is possible.

    4. Also, I want http://www.company.com to able to share a part of it's base with http://www.project1.com(which I'll turn it into a wordpress site). Is this one possible to do too?

  7. To create MultiSite, pick ONE site to be your 'main' site. Install WordPress there. You can even use project2 if you want :)

    Make a SUB site for your next site (say, company.com) and use the domain mapping plugin to map it.

    Project1 you can build out as a subfolder and get it ready before you map it, leaving them up at the same time :)

    ok i made http://www.company.com the main

    I created a subfile "project2"

    1.Now, to move my posts and adjustments from project2.com which is a wordpres site, will I upload them in the corresponding tables that were created by the main site "com1_2_posts" etc? The upload photos, files (from project2.com) where i upload?

    2.I have 1.600 registered members in project2.com. I want to make them common in all of my sites, but I want some members with a specific role(ex: authors) not to have access in all of the sites but in specific ones. In this case will I first move all the users in the main table " com1_users"? And after that I will use the plugin "Multisite User Management"?

    3. If I make them all a network of websites will I still be able to see the same way separately the statistics of every site through the "Awstats"?!
    If it's not how can I do this so I won't loose the flow of the statistics that I see so far?

    4. in com1 Sites Network Admin in the settings of the new subfile site the option "Blog Public" what is it doing when you put 1 or 0?

  9. You don't need to copy tables over, you use EXPORT and IMPORT. Default options in any WP install, though you'll need to use the WordPress importer plugin.

    As for users... Now that's a different kettle of fish. You didn't mention them before and I wish you had (We can only give you advice on what we know).

    Users are best if you DON'T import them. That is, if you build off the site with all your users.

    So I will do it more easily with the import plugin without using import+export in sql.

    What do you mean by saying "That is, if you build off the site with all your users."?

  11. Make your MAIN site the site with all the users.

    Build your subsites off that main site.

    1.How I am going to export only the users?
    2.How I am going to make them common in all of the sites of the miltisite or in specific ones?
    3. How can I export specific tables with this plugin?

  18. 1. You don't. I would make the users first.

    2. Same as always. Users are added to the network, but then you have to make an extra effort to add 'em per site.

    3. YOu can't.
