Running multiple Askbot sites on the same database

Hi, I want to run multiple Askbot sites (because of multiple languages, so I can keep the questions in different languages separated), using one Askbot installation and one database.

Using the same Askbot installation is obviously going to work, but what about the same database?

I wanted to use the same database so all the sites share the same users (who are coming from another site, not Askbot). But I think this is not going to work because all the questions will be mixed together, coming from the same database table.

What do you suggest?

I've thought about adding OpenID provider capabilities to my main Django site (not Askbot), but somehow it looks like there isn't anything that's ready made and good enough. :( That would definitely solve my problem, I guess.

The proper solution would be:

  1. Set up django_openid_provider on the main website that already has all the users
  2. On my Askbot form, add an openid provider for the aforementioned service
  3. Install many Askbot sites using the same installation
  4. Celebrate success! :)
