I am trying to make a script that will create and configure a new multisite in a drupal 7 install using drush 5.8.
I have scripted creating the site folder and settings.php file manually and adding the database information (to get around a bug i was having with --db-url and sql server).
I am setting the dbprefix to be $newSite so that all the tables can live in the same database. The first thing drush site-install tries to do is drop ALL the tables in the database. This includes all the tables created with a different prefix in a previous install.
Is there any way to stop this from happening?
Thanks for your help in advance!
