Thank you so much Kasimir,

I've learned a lot from your words...  My case is the last one. I get it. And I've tried it, but I have this problems:

1) I've dumped my db_domain, but when I tried to up load it in order to creat my second db_tes_domain, I've got the following
massage from phpMyAdmin: 'bd_domain already exist';

Any clue?

Thanks a lot,
mauro.

|Hello Mauro do Carmo,
|
|Do you want this wiki to have the same information, and have it work
|so that if one user edits something on wiki A then the edit will
|appear on wiki B?  If you do, then all that you need to do is create a
|symlink (using ln -s) to the wiki A folder.
|
|If you want to create a copy of the wiki and use the same database
|(same edits, maybe different skins or settings), then you should keep
|the same database, and just copy the files from one folder to another.
|
|If you want to create two completely independent wikis but have one
|based on the other (a copy right now, changes will be made to each and
|they will soon become different), then you need to download the entire
|database to a file (use the command mysqldump) and upload all of the
|tables into a new database (if you have only one database available
|then just change all of the table names).  You will then need to go
|into LocalSettings.php for your new wiki and change all of the
|database information so it is correct for either your new database or
|different table names.
|
|I hope that this helps,
|Kasimir Gabert
