Two blogs on the same database. In fact, I'm trying this on a test
setup that has the same Users and passwords in each.
The main blog (that is, the blog that uses the table prefix in
question) is unchanged -- I didn't change the wp-config since it
already looks at the right tables. The second blog (that uses a
different prefix) has the new defines in its wp-config file pointing
to the tables of the first blog.
I'll do some digging into exactly what happens during the
authentication, but I can't imagine why this would not work....
Thanks for the info so far.. :)
