Questions: multiple sites with one code base

Questions: multiple sites with one code base was created by davidmcmurrey
I have read your article on why multisites are a bad idea. But here's the deal: I have 3-4 Drupal sites that I need to move from a shared server environment to a non-shared.

Do I need to install Drupal for each of those sites?

Another question: this new server automatically used SQL Lite. Will that be a problem?

Hi David,

Yes, you'd need to install Drupal for each of those sites. Even though it's not a "shared" host (i.e. shared between other users), you should still be able to install 3-4 sites.

Here's how to move each one over:

You should be fine moving to SQLite, but you might need to use:
www.drupal.org/project/dbtng_migrator

Hope this helps! Let us know if you have any questions and we'll be glad to answer.

Kind regards,
Nick

Thanks. This gives me something to work on. One last question -- and a dumb one at that -- where is actual data of a Drupal site stored? The blogs, page text, article text, etc.? All that is inthe database, right?

Good question! Yes, it's all in the database.
