SharDB 3.0.1 Update

SharDB 3.0.1 Update

Over the weekend I updated SharDB to allow installs to upgrade from WordPress MU 2.9.2 to WordPress 3.0.1.

I also did an initial pass at support for new WordPress 3.0 -> WP network in SharDB. In this implementation the main site's tables will be in the global database. You can easily set up a test install (to test your plugins, etc. with SharDB). Set up a fresh install that has the network enabled, create your database shards, then configure & install SharDB.

    Hi Ron,

    I would like to make a humble suggestion… When you post articles, sign them. Yes, your name shows up in the post when I visit your website, but it doesn’t show up in the email distribution list. TAKE CREDIT for the good things you are doing!

    Hey Ron,

    Is there a possibility to move from single DB to SharDB semi-automatically?
    I mean, using a script similar to WPMUDev’s?

    […] into this one as usual, but alas all is good in the UMW Blogs hood. In no small part thanks to Ron Rennick who recently upgraded his SharDB plugin to 3.0.1, which did the trick in terms of making sure all was smooth with the multiple-database setup […]

      Nope. That’s coming though.

    Is there a tutorial that has detailed instructions on configuring this plugin? In the db_settings.php file there is a line that instructs to “Add your configurations here”. But the assumption is that the average user will know what to put there. I’m the average user, am not a coder, and know nothing about configuring database tables. But I can follow step-by-step instructions with examples fairly well(if examples are provided)… Could you provide a tutorial of what the configuration should look like when configured correctly–basically a before and after? The only thing close are these detailed instructions for a different multi-db plugin that I don’t have access to ( Thank you Ron…

      There are sample settings commented out at the top of db-settings.php.
