Question: Supporting multi-site instellation on a single account
« on: December 13, 2007, 08:28:48 AM »
Hi all and thanks in advance,

I am trying to set up multiple WSB installation on a shared hosting enviroment, and was wandering about securities issues. Is it at all possible?

What I mean is: one Linux user account, multiple WSB installations isolated from each other. One problem I see immediately is that a `code` page will allow to do anything (via PHP), hence no isolation at all.

Any thoughts?

Well one thing that you can do is using seperated directories.

Like WSB 1 on /wb1/
WSB 2 on /wb2/

And than you can access it like:
http://www.domain.com/wb1/
http://www.domain.com/wb2/

You can use just 1 mysql database if you use the database prefix.

Thanks for answering!

I thought about that, but wouldn't it be easily breakable? i.e. some user can get and change data of another. Just put a PHP code page to look in another directory.
