Hi guys, quite new to Silverstripe. I succeeded (very modestly) managing my first site with SS. How can i set SS to run multiple site at the same time? I mean, compared to Dreamweaver, where we make several site definitions and choose amoung them.

Is there a way to do that?


PS // Any SS tutorials are welcomed.

Congrats on making your first site! First ones always the hardest.

By the sounds of it you simply want to work on more than 1 site at a time. In most cases for developers running websites locally they have a folder for each site and an entirely separate SilverStripe installation. So you webserver folder may be something like C:\www\, you would have put the first site directly in that folder but for managing multiple sites simply have \www\site01, \www\site02.

Failing that if you want to run multiple sites under the same CMS then the subsites module is what you're looking for
