I did have one question unanswered, can you please advise -
If we did use 4 instances of Sitefinity for 4 subsites on 1 server (all with the same base domain name) -
The 4 instances could all dump their indexing results in a network shared "App_Data" folder, and the Search page could then pull from that 'one' shared network folder, instead of 4 separate instances of local "App_Data" folders, right?
Would this method just require pointing the Lucene engine to the shared network "App_Data" folder, and setting sharing permissions on the Win 2008 Server?
Also, would there be a way to tell the origins of each indexed item ? i.e.
Result - xxx xxx xxx xx Recieved from Instance1 of Sitefinity
Result - yyy yyy yyy y Recieved from instance2 of Sitefinity
Also, can Sitefinity index natively multiple URLS? For instance, if we had
Could Sitefinity Lucene engine index multiples such as the Karamasoft ASP.net search Engine does?
We will definitely be using the same base url www.mainsite.com
Thanks for your quick reply, trying to base our purchasing decision on some of these factors.
