I bought a 3rd party jquery slider and I would like to put it on approximately 1,000 sites hosted on a single web server (LAMP). What are the pros and cons of the following methods:
- Distribute copies of the .js and all related graphics and files to each of 1,000 sites. So each site is going to have a folder public_html/slidercode/ with around 15 files in it.
- Put the .js and related graphics/files in a shared location below public_html, such as /usr/shared, then each site would reference the shared .js file.
- Put the .js and realted graphics/files in a shared location above public_html, such as /home/somesharedsite/public_html/
Are any of these security risks? (all files are .js or .png)
Will sharing the files cause any type of performance hit?
Are there any other considerations I should be aware of?
