Data Layout - User login

Hello,

I'm trying to plan out and then configure a scenario on an existing beta site I have created. Currently, a user logs in and then the user in the DBF decides where they are directed, be it an admin, user etc, which works well.

I want to use the same website though for multiple sites, so each would have their own space within the data folder. This could be achieved I suppose by having a master login, which stores the relevant path for that user group (for example this would be users by location, so one area would have one folder, one would have another etc). The trouble with this method is that if the user base grew, so would the user DBF, and each site would have to access the same DBF to manage its users.

 

Hope the above makes sense! I'm basically trying to have the same site name, but with different areas for different user groups..

 

Thanks in advance

Yeah, I've done similar setups on many projects - shouldn't be a problem.
