I hope, you can help us. The support from jms2win is a shame, their english is even worse than ours (not native speaking) plus the tutorials have crappy english (looks like bablefish translations). I really hope, someone here can give us a hint :(.
We have http://www.domainA.com
(setup described below). All setup seems to run fine, no error messages given, but: if I go to http://www.domainb.com
, I see the standard Joomla installation screens. We install Joomla with the same database settings as on domainA, but we use a different table prefix (domainb_)
The installation exits successful, but if you access the webiste, you see the first setup screen again.
Here's what we do:
We run an own server.
We use Plesk and have two domains. http://www.domainA.com
as "main" domain, http://www.domainB.com
added in Plesk as alias (so it uses the same directory on the server).
If I access domainB.com I see the content from domainA.com .
If I use the hello.zip from jms2win it crashes with a senseless error message:
Unable to create the file /var/www/vhosts/[domainB.com]/httpdocs/symlink_file4c14c72be3f2b.txt
Probably you will need to used the Joomla FTP Layer and the Symbolic Links will be forbidden
... no idea what they want to tell me here... anyway:
We have a normal Joomla installation running on domainA.com
We install module "multisite", successful
We add a new domain: Components -> Multisite -> Manage Sites -> New
Owner: -Owners- (no change)
List of domain names: http://www.domainb.com
Every other field we leave as is
It is added, message:
* The site 'domainb' is deployed.
* - You can now map your new domain (http://www.domainb.com) to the directory
* - When the DNS will be updated with your new domain (perhaps you have to wait 24 hours),
* you will can go to your new domain and Joomla will request you a new installation (as usual).
* - Please use a new db prefix for each site and NEVER use 'jos' as prefix or if you want to keep 'jos' as prefix, create as many databases than you have sites.
