Forum/Subdomain Question

I’m trying to install some forum software to the forum..com subdomain. I uploaded the software to the subdomain, but when I try to create a datatbase for that subdomain it tells me that “You’re already using “forum..com” for a database (or website).” Should the database subdomain be separate from the actual forum subdomain?

Thanks!

Yes, the database should be on its own separate subdomain. The default recommendation of “mysql.example.com” is appropriate.
