    Hi, I have recently purchase a handful of domains and they are pointing to my hosts nameserver who provide me unlimited hosting, databases etc.

    When I manually setup WP on my host, I create a SQL database and an SQL admin user for it. Then edit my wp-config.php accordingly. I then create a folder respective to the name of my domain. So for example when I install WP, I put it in a subdirectory such as...

    /public_html/www_mywebsite1_com/

    then all my wordpress files etc live inside there. The WP is fully functional at this point.

    When I purchase another domain, I create another respective folder and setup my CPanel to point this new domain there. so for example: /public_html/www_mywebsite2_com/ is the root path of my 2nd domain, and I install WP here and create the SQL user and database etc again.

    This process is repeated over and over manually...

    What I would like to do is automate the process X times, is this possible?

    eg:
    1. create X new SQL users
    2. create X new SQL databases
    3. give each user full perms to their respective database
    4. create a new "subfolder" (with a name respective to the domain name) on my host beneath the /public_html/ folder
    5. unpack the latest WP files into the "subfolder" created in the last step
    6. modify the wp-config.php respective to the above credentials
    7... anything else i missed/forogt.


    I heard that MU/MultiSite is now integrated into WP, but I looked into this and this only allows 2 types of mass install, 1)subdomain (e.g site1_domain_com and site2_domain_com etc), or 2)subfolder e.g www_domain_com/site1 and www_domain_com/site2 etc. Neither method will do what I need thats why im asking around for a bulk wordpress creator for multi domains (not multi subdomains, or multi subfolders)

    Any help guys?

    Thanks,

    Neil.

    A very interesting question I am after a similar solution, something that starts with creating the databases and goes all the way through to configuring all of the various options within wordpress via a template.

    As many of the wordpress installs I do have many common settings this would save a lot of time.

    Thanks Boro, after a bit of research I did find WPManagerDX and it look like it might suit my needs the other product I found that also looked the bill was Desktop Wordpress Mass Blog Installer and Manager.

    Desktop Wordpress Mass Blog Installer and Manager is desktop rather than server based and it looks like it can manage multiple blogs over multiple physical servers. At the moment I dont have a need for an option to manage wordpress installs over multiple servers.

    Can anyone who has used both of these products outline the major differences and which one they consider to be the better?

    WP ManagerDX may be better than a desktop one because the speed to upload from
    desktop will be to low

    donduck yes this was one of my thoughts also the seed of Desktop Wordpress Mass Blog Installer and Manager, as it is doing everything remotly. If one of these products has better or more options than the other then I will go for that.


    Having said the above I might just purchase both as I think one is $67 and the other $27.
