I have multiple installations of wordpress on my server, all using the same plugins but in different locations.

How can I use a symbolic link link to avoid duplication?

(I can't install them all on same location due to some requirements I have)

What are your requirements? – Ramhound Sep 14 '12 at 15:41

I am not sure I understand. Your question shows two plugins at the same location. I will assume you want to link to a different location.

Assuming links will work, do this:

$ ln -s /home/site1/wp-content/plugins/plugin1 /home/site2/wp-content/plugins/plugin1
