Flora Qian

“Should I use Drupal multisites or multiple sites?” was the question often asked by many Drupal architects and developers when building multiple Drupal sites.

To help you answer this question, we will share our experience and lessons learned in working with several Drupal sites using the Drupal multisite feature. We will talk about what Drupal mulitisite is, its architecture, and why we chose it over other approaches. In addition to the big picture, we will also walk you through Drupal multisite installation in the Acuqia cloud environments and show you how we configure Apache Solr search in multisite settings. You will come away with a better understanding of the common challenges and solutions for Drupal multiple sites management.
