Best way to create archived/historic app versions

Hi folks.

I programmed a website for a small conference last year, containing programme, podcasts and informations. The same event will happen again this year, so we need a new version of the website. I’d really just like to duplicate the app to use the old logic to register. Is there any possibility to use subfolders in a meaningful manner? (The website is already on a subdomain.)

The current website is located at http://atag.accessible-media.at/ and I'd like to move the site to http://atag.accessible-media.at/2008/ and do a new version at http://atag.accessible-media.at/2009/ — The root would just redirect to the 2009 subfolder. Are there any tutorials or a quick step by step introduction what I have to do to make a seamless transition?

Or is there a way to use the same logic for both instances and having just different database tables+templates?

I am really looking forward to your suggestions as I’ve been unsuccessful until now. If you need any more informations, I’m happy to provide them.


CI is pretty flexible and allows personalised system and application paths.
Additionally I got used to implement an asset path and a view path variable.
Sometimes I rename the application folder to the release name and number : domaine_XXX, sharing one common assets folder.
Sometimes I separate versions into different system folders.
The asset path and view path variables allow me further fine tuning for layout changes.

Yatil, yes this should be possible.

The easiest way (while not sure if the most elegant one) will be to create a new index.php file under a new subfolder (or subdomain) and set the path to a copy of the system folder (which can basically sit whereever you like).

Hope this helps.

Hi! Thanks for your tips, will look into them as soon as possible!
