    Is there a way to install a single component multiple times on a single joomla site ?

    Sort of. But it doesn’t sound like a quick fix, and you’ll want to be careful that the component instances are using separate databases. For good or ill, Joomla just isn’t set up this way.

    I hacked one to make a duplicate once. I needed to make modifications for specific reasons. What exactly are you trying to accomplish?

    Cool. nice to hear that it can be done . any suggestions ? coz, i will be using different databases for both of them, but still will joomla allow me to install it ?

    Here’s a link that might help:

    Read the fourth post down. The gist is that you have to rename the component in every file of the installation package.

    What component are you using, btw?

    i am using coursemanager. this offers section only for courses, but i want to add an extra section for classrooms, i thought of injecting code into it, but for some reasons adding extra code just breaks the component, so i tought if i could install it twice (independently) i could make it work and moreover i could have more flexibility on handling both courses and classrooms.
