I am working on developing around 4 product catalogue websites. The functionality of all the websites would be same. however the design, images and css would be different.

All the 4 websites will use the same admin panel, forums and database(MS Access) also.

I dont understand what kind of folder structure should I create.

Ideally I would like to create following kind of folder structure.

(Root Folder)Admin Website ---- > Website 1 (subfolder)
---- > Website 2 (subfolder)
---- > Website 3 (subfolder)
---- > Website 4 (subfolder)

Root folder will have the database and all the common files ( Code for admin pages and forums).

Unfortunately, when I tried to create such structure, Dot Net Didnt allow me to create one website inside another.

Can anybody please suggest me what kind of system should I develop for maximum reusability of code.

I am a small time freelancer and cannot afford to build seperate websites for each of my client.

I DO NOT want to use any content management system .

Thanks a lot..

You don't need four separate websites to accomplish this. One common site with different master pages and themes would be sufficient.

Also, I recommend dumping Access, it is not designed to support multi-user web applications. SQL Server Express is far more capable and gives you an upgrade path.
