I run my sites on my own dedicated box. I have about 60 WordPress installs running on the site and about 2 years ago I slowly started migrating all of the sites into a multi-tenant install. It has been working really, really well, and has made updating the sites a lot easier, etc. I've also been doing the same thing by symlinking plugin directories inside the wp-content/plugins directory. However, ideally, I'd like to be able to add a line to the wp-config file with a secondary location of plugins that I could universally install on my sites. Then I wouldn't need to create the symlinked folders on a site by site basis. It would also add the ability to easily add a new plugin to all 60 sites without much fuss. I don't want to move the location of my plugins folder. I want to add a secondary location, so I can have plugins installed still in wp-content/plugins but also pull from another area. An internal library of sorts.

Hello @scotthack, you can use register_theme_directory() for themes.

For plugins see #19721.
