Thanks for the feedback guys.

 

Basically I have an existing oscommerce shop site with lots of different categories of products e.g. books, CDs, Cards, etc and have purchased separate domains for each of these categories to operate as webshops in their own right (own look & feel etc). However, it makes sense to me to have the 'CD website' for example accessing the 'master db' of my existing shop.

 

I looked through the contribs and found the following ones:

 

http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/1534 - 'Multiple Mini-Stores with 1-Admin' by Brenda Milton

http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/5850 - 'Multiple Domains' by web-project

http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/1730 - 'Multi-stores multiple shop system' by Ryan Hobbs

 

My problems are three-fold:

 

1. Does anyone know which of these would be best?

2. I'm a bit scared of messing up my existing site with DB lock-outs or performance issues as sites will all be using same DB - is this fear justified or am I being a cowardly custard?

3. I'm not really getting how these contribs are working - is it a matter of changing my existing shop oscommerce system to give access permissions to the other websites, or does it also involve installing separate oscommerce packages for each website which are quite separate and just pointing at the db (i presume this latter).

 

I really an a muppet so any simple clear advice would be much appreciated. Many thanks for your help. The master shop by the way is at:
