    2 Databases

    I am with a hosting company that will only allow 1 database per client. I heard from a friend that if I have 2 scripts and each one requires a database. I could create a one of the databases and then and then add.....................(I forgot what he said at this point). Do you recommend as to what I can do?



    Thanx,
    Kitti

    I could create a one of the databases and then and then add....a prefix for each script is probably what he said.

    so for example, if you had phpBB and PostNuke but could only use one database, give each script it's own prefix so they can tell which tables belong to them. in this case, phpBB would be phpbb_TABLEname and PostNuke would be nuke_TABLEname
