I've to create 3 blogs (different DOMAINS) on the same wordpress installation (I cannot use WP MU, unfortunately) so I came out with the idea that I could use categories, instead, so... every blog has its own category (categories would be used only for that.) (eg: blog1.com = blog1) and urls must go like this:



Is there some other way to do it? a plugin, maybe?! Because if I do it this way, I've to redirect a lot of stuff.. have to create a custom homepages etc. could it be done with htaccess or needs to be php? I don't even know if it is possible, and how good will it work... What you think? I need your thoughts on this.

thank you.

If you're looking to run 3 separate domains on the same files but different databases you can do something like this:


You then have to consider if you want separate uploads folders and style sheets. If so, you'll have to define a constant so that you can tell the page which style sheet to use and add some code and apply a hook to send each site's uploads to the correct location. I suppose plugins might also be an issue too, but you could define a bunch of constants in wp-config.php and over-ride defaults if you needed to.

Change the path where wordpress plugins are uploaded
