Now I’d like to have eStore access one database, not two. It’s much more work to handle and update two different installations, not speaking of interpreting statistics.
So: Is it possible to use eStore with 1 database on 2 domains?July 17, 2012 at 3:43 am #47369wzpModerator
Unfortunately, no. Each installation results in its own set of database tables.July 17, 2012 at 4:31 am #47370adminKeymasterJuly 17, 2012 at 5:28 am #47371quadworksMember
Thanks for your answer. However, I have seen that entry before,
Isn’t it possible to change the database-prefix inside estore-plugin to point to a different site?
That would also be a great enhancement to the plugin, I think:
1) Install plugin in multisite
2) Configure plugin, and create all necessary Products on one (1) site only
3) Get the blog-ids from the network-admin-page.
4) Change the prefix on-the-fly from e.g. wp-multi_4 to e.g. wp-multi_8
4b) This has to be changed inside estore-plugins source.
5) Voilà, multiple WP-Blogs all with estore-plugin, one configuration, easy to maintain, cross-domain-store.
This way, you can have one estore-configuration for many different shops on one multisite-WordPress-blog. One user-database, one site to handle. If you sell software like me in German and English (for worldwide customers), this would be a great enhancement to the already great estore plugin!July 17, 2012 at 12:32 pm #47372wzpModerator
Such a modification would be a major project, because of the amount of debugging and quality control testing involved. Here is a more comprehensive list of the considerations involved.
The solution described by @Admin is simple and straightforward, in that each of your sites can link back to the main site.
Alternatively you could use a variation of the iFrame “tricks” that has been previously discussed.
