use one phplist for many websites

Postby phparion » 7:25am, Wed 21 May, 2008


I have 20 websites. Can I install phplist in one central location and then use its subscribe-form on all websites? so that users of any of the 20 websites can sign up for my mailing lists using the same phplist forms.

or i have to install 20 different phplist for each website?

thank you

If you are happy for the subscribe form to be the same for all users of each of your website, then yes.

I would strongly recommend that you change the default phplist_ db prefix to one that makes sense to you for each of your websites though.

You can probably customise the subscribe page so it is sectioned if you wish, for each site.

Otherwise, you can probably set each site up to use the same phplist but have them call different lists on the page, check the documentation for how tos on that though.
My sites:-,,,
Latest phpList version is now 3.0.12 (3 February 2015) and requires a minimum of MySQL 5.0 and PHP 5.3.x
