Multiple site configuration (for Bedrock)

July 2006 I split Bedrock off as its own site.

this required multiple Drupal site configuration.

I considered using Drupal shared tables feature so that we could have common users and perhaps even common node info (so the Bedrock Omnibus could be seen and worked on from both CoPr and Bedrock sites) but it got ugly:

Want Bedrock users to see only Bedrock-specific recent comments, forums etc

I think some of the contrib modules and maybe some of my hacks use hard-coded table names instead of using curly brackets around them.  These would need to be fixed to use shared tables.

database backups etc more complex

So Bedrock has its own database which keeps Bedrock simple, at the expense of CoPr users having to log on to both, watch two sets of comments and forums etc...

 

 

Change of heart - considering and testing shared tables...
