Full Version: sharing one installation with subdomains

Hi!

Another question: Is it possible to have different subdomains.domain.com

targeting the same "xml database file". lets say I have a portfoliopage and a specific Layout - portfolio.domain.com - but now I would like to have fun.domain.com - but with the same portfolio details from the main xml file.

For instance I want to have a serioud website on the one hand, but also a fun website on the other - kind of a themechanger...

thanks!

If you have access to shell on your hosting account, you can try with creating symlinks to files or whole directories. There's also mod_proxy for apache webserver, if you are familiar with htaccess and rewrite rules.
Interesting concept, I could see this also being useful for mobile and desktop versions of sites.
I agree that symlinks would work if you used a VPS or Dedicated Server, with shared hosting it would not be possible probably.
I have shared hosting and can create symblinks just fine.
Depends on your host.
I believe in the past we had a plugin that could acomplish this..

I haven't seen it around lately so I am not sure if it would still be supported.

Hmm... to be honest I've never done it, just assumed it couldn't be done.
You could always use a cPanel redirect Smile
Wouldn't you just alias the subdomains to the same install and use the hostname to serve a different stylesheet?
