The Bad Behavior plugin has done a good job of blocking spam for a long time now, but I’ve just discovered its failing.
New way to tackle this… Last night I tried to install WordPress MU instead of WordPress 3 Beta.
After all, I don’t particularly care about the exciting new features — I just want to run multiple domain names off a single WordPress install so I only have to keep one WordPress install updated and secure instead of 10 or 20 or 50.
For all the stuff I’ve seen about installing MU, I thought it was going to be difficult. It wasn’t, but…
Today I’m going to make a fresh start and try to document it. Maybe it will even work.
My domain for installing WordPress 3 Beta will be https://earthmustdie.com/
So I created a database, uploaded the files and created my WordPress site. That was easy. Now…
I’m getting closer to getting the WordPresss Multisite feature to work for hosting multiple domains with one install.
I went to the WordPress NYC Meetup group last night since they were discussing the features of WordPress 3.0 including Multisite.
As an aside, I’d like to mention that it was a very impressive lecture put on by Steve Bruner and Boone Gorges — both of them know their stuff and know how to explain it. If you’re in the NY area and developing with WordPress I highly recommend this group.
So the plan is to get Multisite working and handling all my different domains. And here’s what I’ve got so far:
Eventually I get up to the point where the domain mapping plugin tells me:
Please uncomment the line //define( ‘SUNRISE’, ‘on’ ); in your /home/mydomain/public_html/mydomain/wp-config.php
But there isn’t a line with that define in my config.php — which may be because the directions are written for WPmu and not WordPress 3 ?
Get it? WordPress 3.0 Multisites is the key to running a lot of websites with minimal maintenance!
