    • Ravi Saive says:

      Follow the same instructions for each virtualhost and create separate database for each domain.. that’s it..

        Hi, @Ravi Saive. I understood him to n instances of Etherpad should run: –settings /path/conf/Settings1.json –settings /path/conf/Settings2.json –settings /path/conf/Settings-n.json
        and I should make every init script for each of the n instances to deploy as a service.
        I would like you to give me some idea: How I can do in a single script you can run the n instances such a services?, please.

    on fedora and centos probably on RHEL too , you need to install the following packages before you ./configure

    yum install -y gcc-c++


    • Ravi Saive says:

      Yes! you right, but these packages included in Development Tools which can be install via Yum as stated in the article.

    Any chance of a guide for how to install plugins? Etherpad is kinda bare bone out of the box but it’s really powerful when you install plugins!
