I've installed v0.9.6 on a DreamHost shared server into a ~myroot/status directory. That works and now I'd like to try a multi-site kind of installation as follows:
Software is installed in ~myroot/statusnet
The install.php is run in ~myroot/site1 to create a config.php for Site1 users.
The install.php is run in r~myroot/site2 to create a config.php for Site2 users.
Both of these use the software in root/statusnet, they will use different databases.
I don't know which files need to be put into the ~myroot/siteN directories and which should not.
.htaccess should be set in each siteN directory as well, but with
RewriteBase '~myroot/siteN' and $config['site']['path'] = '~myroot/statusnet'; ?
Will $config['site']['fancy']=true still do the trick here?
Where are themes kept?
Are plugins at the software level or the site level?
There are too many questions and not enough sources of answers.
The info at http://status.net/wiki/Status_network
is discouraging with words like "hairy" and "tricky". And for this scenario I'm not even sure if that's what I need to look at.
To add a monkey wrench into the works, when I accomplish this task I'd like to understand how to setup as site1.mydomain.com, and perhaps site2.mydomain.com/subtopic ... all with a single codeset.
Thanks for your time!
