Hello, I am new subscriber and new to this forum and I would like to ask a question.

I am attempting to install all the joomla templates with the demo content in the same database making multiple joomla installation with the hotstart packages.

I read somewhere in the internet that this is possible to be done changing in every joomla installation the jos preffix for every installation for example jos1_, sub1_, sub2_ and so on, but when i installed the second template in a separate folder everything became a mess.

The installation i made was in a subfolder like this " www.mywebsite.com/demo/itstarts " the second " www.mywebsite.com/demo/architecture ". I think that something I did was wrong. Can i have some help.

Actually what i am trying to do is something like the hot joomla demo page with the selector above.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards.

HotStart is database installer always use "wa89g_" as db table names prefix. To change this, please edit file /installation/sql/mysql/sample_data.sql in plain text editor (such as Notepad) before running the HotStart installation.

Do Find/Replace and replace all instances of "wa89g_" to, in example "sub_". Then run the installer.

Isn't it easier to use separate DB for every Joomla installation? Almost all hosting providers offer unlimited number of DB's with any package.

Please open support ticket and attach the sql file that your modified. I will try to find the problem with XML.

the problem is that the templates i would like to setup are only for demo purposes and it is not wise to use 10 data bases of the panel just for testing purposes. The demo that the hot joomla setup how they did it . with separate databases. If they did so and there is no other way i will do the same.

Anyway, it's the same thing. I think it's wiser to use 10 normal databases than one giant database with hundreds of tables.

Our demo server uses one separate database for each template demonstration.
