Multiple Sites powered by one DB - will work?
Hi there,

although I already own LinksSQL, this is kind of a
pre-sales question, since I probably need more licenses for what I want to do.

I have 3 websites who need a link directory. The
directory itself will be identical for all sites, it will be
maintained by LinksSQL (static html output). Look+feel should be different for each site and the URLs of the
non-static parts (like search,suggest URL etc.) should
correspond to the sites' Hostname (i.e. site1/search.cgi, site2/search.cgi etc.)

From what I know about LSQL, the basic Configuration
(URLs, Names, Globals etc. ) is in the ConfigData.pm
and other _FILES_. Opposed to this, the directory structure and content is completely in the database.
Now if I install LSQL on three different sites and
use the same database for all three sites, will this
work? I would do administration and maintenance
of the Directory in one of the three sites and still
all Linkdirectories would contain the same structure
and data - right?

This question came up in the forums from time to time
but most of the time discussion shifted to license issues. However, Licensing is not the question here.
First of all I have to know whether this setup really works seamlessly so that we set up the base installation for each site just once and for good an do the regular maintenance on only one site from then on without having to worry about multiple database exports/imports or replication etc.

Regards,
Ulrich
