Symlinking the plugin directory


Hi folks,

If I have several Omeka Classic installations on Reclaim Hosting that I want to use the same pool of plugins, can I just create a folder with the plugins and symlink them, so that I don’t have to manage them on each installation manually?

So let’s take say I three installations:

  • ~/public_html/omeka1
  • ~/public_html/omeka2
  • ~/public_html/omeka3

And a directory of plugins:

  • ~/public_html/omeka-plugins

Can I just symlink (ln -sn) the plugin directories like this:

  • ln -sn ~/public_html/omeka-plugins ~/public_html/omeka1/plugins
  • ln -sn ~/public_html/omeka-plugins ~/public_html/omeka2/plugins
  • ln -sn ~/public_html/omeka-plugins ~/public_html/omeka3/plugins

Or will I run into trouble?


I’ve gone ahead and implemented this approach. I’ll see if it works out okay and report back :slight_smile:
