Guten Tag! :-)
I'd like to host several blogs on one server an have the possibility to move them around between different servers. I chose the Clean SVN Install and it works great. Together with a homegrown multi-server-config i'm really close to what i want. But i'd like to have the WordPress-core in a different location and link it with a symlink in the directories of the blogs.
And here's my problem:
ABSPATH (normal location) and one directory up. That's where it normally is with a Clean SVN Install, but
ABSPATH is made of
__FILE__ and contains the "real" directory and not the path of the symlink.
For showing the blog to public i can simply patch
/index.php by doing what is normally done by
wp-load.php, but this doesn't work with the admin pages.
Of course i could patch
wp-load.php, but patching core files is the most important thing i want to avoid with the clean svn checkout.
I hope this doesn't sound too confusig to you. If you want i can give futher information about what i do and want.
