I’ve relaunched ShareYourMusic.com as a separate site which no longer shares content with WorldBeatPlanet. It will provide a community for independent artists with forums and a store to sell their music. Right now I’m only selling CDs through CD Baby, but I’d also like to publish and sell music myself.
It shares the same Drupal installation with WorldBeatPlanet but uses a completely separate database, using Drupal’s multiple site feature. When I was developing the site, rather than creating the database on my PowerBook and uploading it to the live server after I finish configuring it, I created the database directly on the live server, configured it from a local Drupal installation on my PowerBook, and after it was fully set up I edited the settings.php for shareyourmusic.com to point it to the new database.
