View Full Version : applying pixelpost to sub-domains
03-07-2005, 08:05 PM
My friend and I created a website for creating our photoblogs on Yahoo, and will be utilizing sub-domains for each of our sites separately. Can PixelPost function on a sub-domain level, or is there a different setup needed for it to function?

well, a subdomain is mostly a normal directory which belongs to your webspace
the server is configured to deliver the content of this directory as a subdomain
you should try to install Pixelpost in a directory and check the path to the program and the images after installing
you can install as much as different installations of PixelPost as you want, just give each installation a different prefix
$pixelpost_db_prefix = "13_"; // table prefix, leave as is unless you want to install multiple blogs on the same database in the pixelpost.php

as Connie has said, it's all OK with subdomains and you need just to install it on a subdirectory of your site. I'm using my photoblog as a subdomain already.

I installed Pixelpost using a subdomain. I had some trouble however, because $PHP_SELF was pointing to the wrong place. I fixed it by doing a find and replace on the index file - I searched for $PHP_SELF and replaced it with subdomain.mydomain.net/index.php. This is not an ideal solution, as I will have to repeat it everytime I upgrade to a new version of Pixelpost. However, it does work. See it in action at http://aspherical.foursevenfour.net/

Thanks so much for your assistance. I'll give your suggestions a try and let you know how it turns out. Thanks again~!! :D

well, please keep in mind that a subdomain is always "a layer" above the real directory structure
with every release upgrade you must "hard code" this into the index.php
I am not so much convinced that this is the real way. I will try to install it in a subdomain myself (but give me time for that)

I had no problem (at all!) with subdomain and no need for modifications!
check your subdomain settings. is it a vaild subdomain?
