Drupal multi site hosting

Hello and welcome.

I'm running several sites using Drupal's multisite feature, and noticed the absence of a group to discuss the various issues and how-tos related to doing this. If anyone has any questions about the basics, I can probably answer them. I'd also like to see some tutorials about more advanced stuff like sharing database tables.

I was trying to create a multisite setup (which I've done a dozen times before) for a subdirectory (i.e. mydomain.com/failedsitename) implementation. After going through the setup process, the url www.mydomain.com/failedsitename is bringing up the www.mydomain.com web page instead of the Drupal install, even though the www.mydomain.com/failedsitename url is displayed.

Hi guys. I'm quite new to Drupal multisites and have what I hope is a simple query, I just don't know the answer. ;-)

How/where do you switch your multisite development subdomain, for example, devsite.quantos.co.uk to its full actual domain name, for example www.quantos.co.uk ?

I've been successfully following the advise found on various sites, such as this one: groups.drupal.org/node/121989 but everything I've read so far only talks about theoretical development URLs and not what happens when you're re-developing a site and you're ready to switch over.

On the menu for this go 'round is multi-sites. We'll be learning how to set up a multi-site live, how to configure our local machines to work with multi-sites and multi domains, set up git branches & repos for the sites, update the variety of sites with Drush and best ways to handle individual configuration of modules as required.

Question about Drupal multi-site ecommerce setups and using SSL certificates. I know that to use an SSL certificate, a dedicated IP address is required. So if you have a multi-site setup where each site needs to have an SSL cert, each site in the multi-site needs it's own IP address. From what I've read, this is quite a challenge to get around. So, I was wondering. what if an SSL certificate that secured multiple top level domains and used only 1 IP address was purchase - like this -

I would like to know what do we have to install and configure on remote web-servers to use the Pack module on BOA ?

I would like to have the possibility of load-balancing each site I want with BOA.
