[resolved] Single CDN host name, multiple sites, conflicts with wp-content files (4 posts)

    I have 2 blogs, one hosted under my main domain, and one on a subdomain. I would like them both to use the same hostname for CDN served content (static.joostschuur.com). For media library content, this seems to work just fine. I set my Settings -> Media -> 'Full URL path to files' to http://static.joostschuur.com/blog/ and http://static.joostschuur.com/idg/ respectively, and by some behind the scenes magic, it looks like you subtracted the hostname that I provided in my CloudFront settings from the URLs above and figured out that you needed to place files in a sub-directory. Quite impressive, I was actually looking for an option to configure that, and didn't expect this much magic.

    However, when I exported my theme data, it proceeded to add that to the root directory of my CDN bucket, i.e. static.joostschuur.com/wp-content. This means 2 sites couldn't share the same hostname. Have I hit a scenario that W3 Total Cache can't handle right now?

    I tried appending my subdirectory to the bucket name or hostname under my CDN settings, but both broke the CDN test.

    I'm currently running

    That is not possible in any available release.

    Thanks for clarifying, Frederick. I've switched over to using different hostnames for each blog instance now, and that does the trick.
