A while back I was trying to get Processwire working on the Homestead vagrant box - a really handy vagrant box made by Taylor Otwell (Laravel creator). One cool thing about homestead is it has its own config file where you can set 'path maps' which map a folder on your computer to the vagrant box, and then also set up hostnames. So for example you can set up 10 domains pointing to different locations on your machine, making it a nice all in one vagrant development box for your sites.
One thing it didn't do was support processwire. The way it works is it uses setup files for each site, and you can specify things like a site to use nginx, a site to use apache, etc.
So to get round this I wrote a custom setup script for it to get processwire working, and it works really well. I've put it up on github should anyone else find it handy, it's a pretty simple little script and is based on the Laravel one included in Homestead.
Hopefully it'll be useful to someone out there You can grab it here: https://github.com/rickmills/homestead-processwire
I have one central website, with membership registration and content etc., and then several related websites with their own URL/domains, each on Processwire, all on the same server.
I would like to access the database of the central website from the sister websites. How would I do that?
You can't bootstrap one PW installation into another. You can include template parts from one in the other by just using the server path, but whatever you try to get/post just comes/goes to the database of the site you are on.
Could you switch databases by including the config.php from another PW installation somewhere?
What is the correct, secure way to do this?
As the question says, I'd really like to learn about your initial client communication workflows. In other words, what's your process like from the moment you get a request to provide a quote for a website to the moment you actually send the quote?
My current workflow:
A client fills out the contact form on my site to request a quote. I review the information provided and send them a Word document questionnaire with a list of questions. I ask for things like project scope, features needed, desired timeline, allocated budget, etc. They fill out the document and send it back to me. I review the information provided and make sure I've got everything I need. I write and send the quote to the client. Client accepts the quote. I send them a contract, get it signed and collect 50% of total payment. I gather some extra information from them, usually just by asking questions via email or by sending them another Word document questionnaire. I start building their site. Lately, I've been thinking about changing this workflow a bit. Currently, my online contact form has three fields: name, email and message. What I'm thinking is, what if I provide a select toggle above my form so that clients can choose between a simple, general enquiries form and a larger form (with all the questions I've got in my Word document) to request a quote? This would allow me to do away with the Word document, and would make this a one-step process.
The reason why I haven't done this so far is because I'm not sure how good of an idea it is to have a long contact form with say, 10-15 questions. What's your take on this?
Another thing I'm not entirely happy with is having to send them two questionnaires (steps 2 and 8). The reason why I do this is because I don't want to overwhelm them with lots of questions at the beginning, and also because, to be honest, the questions I ask in the 2nd questionnaire do not really influence pricing, as they have more to do with the nature of their business, their goals with the new site, possible corporate colours they may have, things like that.
What do you guys think? Does my workflow seem sensible to you? Is it similar to what you do? What would you change?
Thanks, and sorry for the brick!
P.S. If some of you guys are willing to share your client questionnaires I would certainly appreciate it.

Hi! I've just started on ProcessWire, coming from Wordpress. I've done several sites in WP but this new one is just to data driven for Wordpress to handle without so many plugins and custom code it just seemed like there must be a better option so here I am. I used to do a lot of stuff in Access (many years ago) and have some experience with PHP/MySQL.
I've had a look at a few tutorials and created the planets website etc. I have a specific structure that I'm looking to create so thought I would ask for some expert advice before making every mistake in the book.
I do a lot of long distance (inn to inn) walking and am always looking for new ones which involves searching many different sites. I've yet to find a good repository for this type of thing so thought I would build my own. The basic structure is (more info added later but trying to get basic idea of best practices):
Walks -> Walk Variations <->Walk Segments <-> Walk Towns (go into Walk Segments as Start and End Towns).
Walk Towns <-> Accomodation, Walk Towns <-> Dining
Should I be using ProFields? How should I structure this as far as fields/templates?
Thanks in advance for your help.
