This is a really helpful overview of multisite, which we are using on our site. You gave me some ideas for streamlining things with drush, which is the best tool ever.

One difficult issue is file managing, which I use rsync for. Copying files from one environment to another is easy this way, since doing it through the UI is not feasible. It would be nice if Acquia split that out.

One questions I'm having is on removing a domain from my sites folder. I defined duplicates of some domains, not realizing I only needed the primary domain if .htaccess if directing all traffic there. If I remove a sites/domain.name folder, does it get cleaned up? Or do I have to do that? I already queried the database to make sure there were no references to files in the unneeded folder.

Thanks for the great article!
