I currently have a working Drupal Commerce site up and running. This site is on a godaddy / cpanel server. This site is on an addon domain and sits in the following server directory:
I have the modules / configuration working well and want to use this base code to operate a second Commerce site, primarily to reduce my base code maintenance. (I am fairly new to Drupal and have built two sites for our family's small business. Pretty fun :)
I read a ton about setting up multi-sites that convinced me it would be fairly straightforward. Here's what I have done:
- Created a new database on the server. Assigned my "user" to that database with all admin privledges
Created a new directory under the working Drupal Commerce site home/.../public_html/xxxxx.com/sites/siteY.com
Pointed my "addon" domain to the Document Root above
- Copied my default.settings.php into /public_html/xxxxx.com/sites/siteY.com
- Renamed to settings.php with the database login information
- Set my /siteY.com directory and settings.php to "777" permissions
When I navigate to "siteY.com", I keep getting a 403 error:
Forbidden You don't have permission to access / on this server. Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
If I navigate to "siteY.com/install.php, I get a different permissions error msg:
Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
Please contact the server administrator at webmaster@ to inform them of the time this error occurred, and the actions you performed just before this error.
More information about this error may be available in the server error log.
Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Is it an issue to create a multisite from an add-on domain? What am I missing here? Should I jump ship and use the "Domain Access" module?
