Add Sites to MSM¶
When the Multiple Site Manager expansion is added to an ExpressionEngine installation, it enables the software to power up to 3 MSM Sites. Follow these steps to add more Sites to your ExpressionEngine installation.
Purchase Additional Sites¶
Pull up the manage purchases page in your account on EllisLab.com. (Make sure you’re logged into the same EllisLab account used to purchase the Multiple Site Manager license.) Next to the MSM license in question, you’ll see the option to Add Sites. Follow the checkout process in the store.
When you purchase additional Sites, your Multiple Site Manager files are automatically updated with the appropriate number of Sites.
Download New MSM Build¶
After completing the order, head back to your manage purchases page and download a copy of the Multiple Site Manager license with the newly added Sites. You’ll need this new MSM build to unlock the additional Sites in your software.
Upload to Your Installation¶
After unzipping the downloaded package, you’ll find a directory with these files:
Upload each of these files to their respective directories within your ExpressionEngine installation.
Now your installation will have the ability to power that many more MSM Sites. The next step is to set up the new MSM Site in your installation.
