    2 databases in one?

    Hi,

    I have what are essentially two seperate databases on consisting of 4 tables and the other of 2 tables. The databse are both MySQL.

    I will be hosting both of the m on my website and using PHP to access them. My host allows me a maximum of 5 MySQL databases and also when ever I access one databse it is very likely that I will be accessong the other one as well. Should I:

    A. split the databases up completely one MySQL database each

    OR

    B. just whack all six tables in one MySQL database

    Thanks.
    Laws are like sausages. You have much more respect for them if you haven't actually seen how they're made.
