1 server, multiple boards -- share configurations?

(1/2) > >>

i'm planning to have multiple forums on 1 server.
what config files can they share? especially time consuming configs which preset new user default preferences... if i change these settings on one board can it auto- update the other boards or can I copy a config file between the boards?

!Hachi!:
its not good thing to mix up two different forums.you will use two dbs totally different so i will recommend don't mix things in forum thing might get too complicated.

SleePy:
The only different files you will need is an index.php and a Settings.php
The index.php is used to setup things and the Settings.php contains the database and paths.
Everything else can link to basically a single area.

The down fail is if you install a mod that needs to edit the index.php... You have to do a lot of work  :(

yeah! for clarity, i want my boards to be identical except for headers, logos, user base, and posts.
so if i make a smart change for default settings or add karma at a later date, i can do it once

something tells me it won't work well... like if i want to force a setting to all existing users would it expect to change a DB?? or in my case, need to change several DBs?
