I'm not sure if this is really the correct place to post this, but I'll give it a shot..
I noticed the release of Gallery v2 posted today on /. and decided to give it a go by installing the minimal version. The installation process looks to be very good, but I've paused at step 3.
With our reseller account I would like to try and setup a "Multisite installation" of Gallery 2. This is a quote from the install script's step 3...
With our reseller account, on a shared server, can we install the codebase at our main website, and host the gallery install for any number of the websites we resell to. This would save on disk space by requiring only one 12-18 mB copy of Gallery 2 to be installed. On the sites we host/manage, 4 small files, a database, and a few tables, etc, is all that would be required to setup a gallery.
The only problem seems to be that files running under our reseller account that reside in the path...
...cannot access files in another accounts path.
Would we have to be on a dedicated server to be able to do this?
Any thoughts on how we could go about setting up a multiple site install?
The only alternative that comes to mind is to setup subdomains at our main website for each website we host, that will be using the gallery script.
Or, we could upload multiple installations of Gallery 2 to most/some of the accounts we host/manage, and in a way, we'd really be wasting disk space.
Would using the subdomain idea from above be the best way for us to go, for now, since we're on a shared server?
I’d really appreciate any advice on this topic.
Thank you very much TCH,
