Drupal Multisite Madness
Drupal has this REALLY cool feature called Multisites. It allows you to use one installation of Drupal and manage as many sites as you want (or at least as many sites as your computing resources can handle).
This session will provide information related to the topic of leveraging multisites to the fullest extent known (at least by the speaker). With a focus on topics associated to using CVS & SVN (code management) for deployment, performance optimization (tuning for multisites), a flexible implementation architecture and having fun with new-site rapid deployment, expect to enjoy a multisite wild ride.
Session assumptions about you, and what you know (or don’t yet)
- Not afraid of the command line
- At least a bit comfortable with CVS/SVN
- Willingness to look at code
- Not squeamish about httpd.conf (and know what it is)
- Want to run more than one Drupal site on the same server
My name is Matt Petrowsky and I’ve been using Drupal for close to 5 years. I’ve been using the Multisite features for 2 of those 5. I’ve been a developer of Drupal modules (just a few) since 2005 (most all modules were private), but I’ve recently been releasing modules on Drupal.org. I’m currently providing free Drupal learning content on the site GotDrupal.com.
