A very basic MySQL set-up question for the database aces out there.
I'm planning to set up a VBulletin forum on recently acquired PHP server space.
It is intended that the messages submitted will be stored on an expandable database from which subscribers can access and view the threads by entering 1)key subject words or 2)the username or 3)date thread was submitted, etc.
Also required will be the registration details (protected) of the subscribers.
Essentially, what I'd like to know is will I need two databases (one for the threads; and 1 for the subscribers) or just the one?
Your word on this and start-up would be much appreciated.
Welcome to SitePoint! :)
This really shouldn't be in Introductions, though. Try the PHP forum. ;)
Welcome to the forums! :)
This will be moved to the correct forum shortly.
Welcome to Sitepoint Forums! :D
Welcome abord :)
'hope you'll find your answer once the thread moved. btw, as far as I understand your question you will need only one db. Have you tried to ask your question on http://www.vbulletin.com?
good luck :)
Moved to a more appropriate forum....
Unless you plan on editing the vBulletin code, it is designed to work with one database. Unsure exactly why you would want it in two databases.
