I have a client that has 3 sites. Two of them are retail and one of them is wholesale. They all carry the same products, so the majority of the media files are the same on all 3 sites. Two of the sites are subfolders of the 'main' site.
To save drive space and effort on my part, is it possible to have a single media library and have the 3 sites share it? Could i do this by setting the media directory of 2 of the sites to a soft link to the 3rd media directory?
A multisite set up will not work for me due to the tools i'm using.
I'm assuming that the media serialized data would mess that up, but has anyone tried this before?
