Having read the book and got to the One Drupal, Many Websites part where I want to create two site or more, with all sites sharing the same user database, I am having problems.
I have two sites sharing the same D7 core files / modules which will be good for updating, which I am sure there will be a lot of, but I am struggling to get the sites to share a user database.
I currently have
$databases = array (
'driver' => 'mysql',
'database' => 'server_site1001',
'username' => 'server_site1001',
'password' => 'password',
'host' => 'localhost',
'port' => '',
'prefix' => '1001_',
I have created a new database called server_members and have a table called mem_users
But I canot seem to get the site to reconise the mem_users table in the server_members database
Hope this is clear
"There really is no magic to getting Drupal to share content between multiple sites" but is there some magic I am missing to share users in separates databases.
