dumbest ever question?

dumbest ever question? was created by bigjohn
Can community builder make "subdomain based" site? I want one joomla install, basically, and each user can have their own "username.sitename.com" type site... also joomla.

does that make sense?

possible by tinkering with the .htaccess files using mod_rewrite and redesigning the default .htaccess line for userhomepages ( www.domain.com/user )

then you need a dns server that directs *@domain.com to www.domain.com sacrificing ability to have real subdomains.

if you meet the above requirements you can easily do it.

I can do all that - i control the hosting... I would need detailed steps for that though, how to do it on a vhost under apache, etc.

ask your host to help you getting your dns to forward * to www.

then its just a matter of redesigning the .htaccess line.

original:

RewriteRule ^([^/\.]+)/?$ /index.php?option=com_comprofiler&task=userProfile&user='$1' [L]


I am not familiar with regex to write your new line but do study mod_rewrite on google and im sure you can find an example. many should have gone before you.
