What could be the best approach to creating an application farm or application family? The easiest I can think of is using symlinks but it is tedious to setup.
The other method I’m thinking editing the application and adding if-statements so it will read the correct config-block/file but that’s prone to accidentally overwriting your edits when you update your copy.
Is it advisable even to begin with? One directory serving different installations. Or putting it another way, many installations reading just one directory.
