valiant: need to edit the last addition / section. most of it just refers to "how to install a multisite" and the last part is covered by the g1 -> g2 migration. so it's rather confusing since it's not as complete as the dedicated docs. probably just replace most of it with links to dedicated docs and reduce it to quite short instructions.
The instuctions at http://codex.galleryproject.org/index.php/Gallery2:Multisite#Initial_Setup_-_Install_the_codebase seem to imply that the codebase doesn't need to be installed, merely copied to the server at the relevant webspace.
Is this actually the case? Must I first set up a complete normal install and use that as the codebase, or can I simply upload the G2 files as if I were going to set up a site and not install it?
If I don't actually install it, what must I do in order to secure the install files so that someone can't come along and screw my codebase?
I just tried the procedure, where I keep the codebase and move the existing install to a new url (the second 'A)'). When I try to log in with admin account, I get redirected to the codebase, which now does not have a config.php so it redirects me to the installer.
Example from the source:
Problem seems to be that g->theme doesn't include the base url, even though it is correctly set in the config.php. Version: 2.2.3. Am I missing something obvious?--Mdev 05:04, 3 December 2007 (PST)
