nested sites with Power CMS

I have a situation where two sites are hosted on the same server at GoDaddy. The second site is held in a directory and it's domain name is directed to that directory to pick up its index.php file. A few months ago I did a redesign for the client and added Power CMS to the site.

I am now doing a redesign on their main site (this one is hosted in the root directory) and they want Power CMS added to this site also.

I built the site as I normally would and have it up on a test server running with Power CMS.

The problem comes when I try to move everything to their server.

I have setup a separate database for the new (root hosted) site and transferred the tables from the test server. When I first accessed the site the Power CMS admin prompts came up to set up the SN and a user but after this it seems that the database for the other site is being picked up. When I log into the admin panel all I see are listings for the other site's content areas and the pages display no content in the new site.

Should I have used the same data base for both sites and if so how do I setup all the additional files and directories the Power CMS creates so they are shared by both the root hosted site and the secondary nested site?

This isn't going to work out very well.

Power CMS isnt designed to have multiple instances in the same site, which is what you are trying to accomplish essentially, even though you have different domains, it's still the same site.


you would have one CMS instance installed to the root site that is used by both the root and sub domain.

Thanks Jason,

So to clean this up it sounds like I will need to setup a new database and completely strip all the Power CMS code from the sites and start things over. Add CMS to the root site then just add the content access code to each page of the subdomain once the Power CMS system is working.

If there is anything that can shortcut having to completely strip all that code out I would be thrilled to know about it but I'm not holding my breath.

Sorry, but there wont be a shortcut way to fix this.
