    How do I setup ISPConfig for secure drupal [multisite]?

    I am setting up a 360 server with Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Disk Image using the guide The Perfect Server - Ubuntu Hardy Heron (Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Server). Since my primary use for this server is for Drupal I am using the guide a more secure drupal [multisite] install to build my server folder structure and Drupal multi-site configuration.

    I thought I understood everything until I got to the discussion on the multi-site writeup about this script:

    if [ $# -lt 2 -o $# -gt 2 -o "$1" = "--help" ]; then
    	echo 1>&2 Usage: $0 webname
    	exit 127
    # set up the site directory
    #	(i have .htaccess, robots.txt, and all the php include files mentioned in
    #	saved in a folder called ~/drupal/base)
    cp  /var/drupal/base/* /var/www/$1/web/
    # make the file directory
    mkdir /var/drupal/files/$1
    chmod ug+w /var/drupal/files/$1
    # set up some symlinks
    ln -s /var/drupal/includes /var/www/$1/web/includes
    ln -s /var/drupal/misc /var/www/$1/web/misc
    ln -s /var/drupal/modules /var/www/$1/web/modules
    ln -s /var/drupal/profiles /var/www/$1/web/profiles
    ln -s /var/drupal/themes /var/www/$1/web/themes
    ln -s /var/drupal/sites /var/www/$1/web/sites
    ln -s /var/drupal/sites/all /var/www/$1/web/sites/all
    ln -s /var/drupal/files/$1 /var/www/$1/web/files
    # make the site file and edit it
    mkdir /var/drupal/sites/$2
    cp -r /var/drupal/sites/default/* /var/www/$1/web/sites/$2/
    # append some stuff to the end of the new settings file
    echo "\$conf = array('file_directory_path' => 'files/$1', 'file_directory_temp' => 'tmp');" >> /var/www/$1/web/sites/$2/settings.php
    # i usually enter the db config by hand in vim. you could easily
    # echo the db config to the end of the settings file kinda like above.
    vim /var/www/$1/web/sites/$2/settings.php
    How do I use/implement this? Where does it go?

    I've been researching this for 3 weeks and I want to do everything right. This is the last piece of the puzzle. I would like to be able to automate the folder structure/creation for the Drupal sites without removing the ability to add html/php only sites, but it isn't a deal breaker.

    :eek: If I can get this answered I am going to post my own write up merging all the tutorials into the configuration I implement. Many Druapl developers will benefit from this scenario. Thanks.
