I have a single liferay 6.0.6 CE server, there are several portal instances; each individual instance has a series of communities that shares the configuration.
Is there a way to add different individual configurations for each portal instance (for ex.

I think it should be possible as I see the provision in to include company specific properties, though I have never tried id. Check out the following property. It says first you have to set company-id-properties system property to true, then you can have

 1    #
 2    # Each portal instance can have its own overriden property file following
 3    # the convention To enable this feature, set
 4    # the "company-id-properties" system property to true.
 5    #
 6    # To enable:
 7    #
 8    #     java ... -Dcompany-id-properties=true
 9    #
10    # The read order will now be:, then,
11    # and then
12    #
13    # Note that not all properties can have different values per company. This
14    # functionality is only available for legacy reasons. The preferred way to
15    # configure a portal instance is through the Control Panel.

Hi Matteo,

did you manage to make this work, after all? I'm trying to do the same for the Web server properties with no success. Any gotchas you encountered? Anyone else?

In detail, what I did:
I added -Dcompany-id-properties=true to setenv.bat in the line defining JAVA_OPTS
I also created file with company-id-properties=true in it
I created and inside I added the web server properties I wanted to customize for the instance with the given webId

I think that should be all.
