Multiple installation of one ports

Hi Martin,

You want to install multiple sites on one server or multiple servers?

If the former, there is a solution for you at:

I have yet to try this, but will likely give it a shot some day...

If the latter, are your other systems FreeBSD? If so, (and forgive me if I'm telling you something you already know) you simply need to run portupgrade/portaudit on those systems. If, for example, it's some Linux distrobution, see if it has a package management software that will handle installing and upgrading Drupal.

In all cases, portupgrade will not do everything for you. You still may have to run update.php sometimes if a particular update needs to have databases changes.

Genuinely hope this helps! :)

Hi everyone,

I've been asked by a customer to install Drupal on one server to manage 
a new site. No problem yet. But, he also asked if it would be possible 
to install it for other sites.

I know that there is a warning if you want to install a port that is 
already installed, but is there a way to bypass this? I know I could 
install it from the tarball from the website, but I want to be able to 
use portupgrade and portaudit to deal with it.

Any suggestions?

Thank you for your time,
