Different content on each subdomains possible?

Post by schwichti » June 21st, 2014, 10:00 am

Hello,

we have just two short questions to you:

1.
we like to set up one maindomain in joomla 3.x to share their template and the content to a number of different subdomains. Is it possible to settle up indipendent contaktforms and extensions like a blog on each subdomain?
2.
One admin shall administrate only "his own" subdomain. This admin also does not change any content on the maindomain. We plan to have around 50 subdomains with 50 administrators.

thanks for your reply, kay

1. Yes, each slave can use own database tables for certain extension and hence have own unique data managed from site's own backend.
2. It's impossible, there are 2 options:
a) each site uses own database tables and hence have own independent content managed from own backend.
b) all sites use same tables and hence have same contents, no matter which backend to use - contents will be updated on all sites.

You also need to decide will you use same files (share Joomla installation) or not.

Would the content categories be shared, or can they be kept separately for each site?

There are 2 options:
1. Sites have same categories (all Joomla categories).
2. Each site has own independent categories as usual.

It depends on how would you like to keep them.
If articles are shared - better share categories, otherwise categories IDs can be messed.

So if I have the following:

a) each site uses own database tables and hence have own independent content managed from own backend.

I can create a subdomain via Mighty Sites and not have to re-install everything.
This subdomain, then, can have different articles, images and pictures on it.
I can even change the template so that it can be a different color or variation of the same template.

Once creating a new slave site in MightySites you can clone database tables of any existing site for new site.
MySQL user of new slave site should have access to database of source site.
