Does Askbot support multiple sites on the same server with the same code base?

Can I run multiple sites through a single Askbot install?

Granted, I have not made the attempt. But everything about my single-site experience suggests that multiple sites will be no problem.

First of all, I installed Askbot via pip directly into my central site-packages repository. So that would be accessible from every separate site that you install.

Secondly, when I ran the Askbot setup script to create a new site, it asks where you want to put the installation---and then it creates a copy of the template files, uwsgi initialization script, and configuration settings, but not the main Askbot code. This suggests to me that multiple uwsgi servers could run off the same code base. Editing the templates for one site won't change the look of another site.

Of course, you will need to create a separate database for each site, and manage a separate uwsgi server. But there's nothing I saw that suggests this is not possible.
