Hi All,
I'm new to Silverstripe. I tried it, looked into the code, i found it cool.
So i do have some more administrative question:

1) Is there any modules, or core code, to have one single install and manage multiple website on the same or on different domains ? Each one with his own admin interface and perhaps DB.

2) Is there any upgrade howto ?

3) Is there a tools to manage many remote websites ? By manage, i mainly mean INSTALL, UPGRADE, etc...

I wonder to know if these 3 questions have an answer or if i got to learn sapphire framework and contribute to the project.

Hi Otiteca, Welcome to SilverStripe

1) Multiple Sites

See the Subsites module ( This runs all the sites on 1 db but can support different themes, cms sitetrees, members etc.

2) Upgrade Howto

A guide is available -

3) Is there a tools to manage many remote websites?

No specific tools built into SilverStripe however. Its more in the domain of custom server scripts which you can write depending on your workflow. Some people like to run all their websites off 1 install via symlinks. I prefer using subversion and subversion externals to manage upgrading the core software.

Thanks for the welcome Willr,

I'll look into the subsites module and see if there's a way to patch it, i prefer that each sites have is own DB.
For the point 3, i'll look what i could do to enhance this part, it's a critical point for me to ease the websites management/deployment/upgrade
