We are happy to announce the completion of a large WordPress Multi User (WPMU) project for one of our clients.
The requirement was as follows:
Currently we manage a set of wordpress blogs each with its own installation on its own servers. Some blogs were the main site for the respective domains and some blogs were wordpress installations in sub folders in the respective domains. This was becoming a maintenance nightmare, as with each version upgrade of wordpress, we had to upgrade ten different local installations of the same.
Our task was to eliminate the need for maintaining multiple wordpress installations and have a single installation that will be used to manage multiple blogs, one sub domain per blog. Also, we had to come up with a way to get a blog up and running with minimum effort for any new client/guest asking for a new blog for themselves.
We managed to accomplish the goals successfully today and have centrally implemented the wordpress MU blogging tool on Blogs Plugin – http://blogsplug.in/
