[opencms-dev] Copy site-content link problem

Hi all,

I've got a question regarding sites.

Our OpenCms instance is going to run 20-30 different sites. To avoid  
creating default files for each new site manually (options, column  
layout, ...), I just want to copy a basic set of files.
So, if I want to create a new site "mysite" I would copy all files  
under /sites/siteDefaultFiles to /sites/mysite. In siteDefaultFiles  
there are basic hello- world HTMLs, configuration files etc.

The file /sites/siteDefaultFiles/en/config from type ttconfig  
references a box in /en/boxes/myBox (relative address).
After copying the config- file OpenCms changed the links from /en/ 
boxes/myBox to /sites/siteDefaultFiles/en/config.

This is actually not what I want. I want the URL to stay relative or  
at least to references /sites/mysite/en/config.

I really tried a lot. Copy before creating the mysite, Create mysite  
and then copy, ... export/import ...

Has anybody got an idea how to handle this?

Thanks a lot!
