Can anyone help me with sort of a top-level understanding about mySQL and the one-click installs? We have a Web site with Webcalendar and Gallery, both of which I installed before they became one-clicks, so they don’t show up on the Web panel. I believe they also each have a mySQL database which I set up at the time but really can’t remember now - just followed manufacturer’s instructions and it worked…
I see two databases, one for the calendar and one which may be for our site in general although I’m not sure.
Anyhoo, now, I want to install Wordpress and I need to designate a user and a database. Can I use one of the existing mySQL ones or do I need to set up a unique database? How do these things all talk to each other? I understand databases generically speaking but have basically no experience with these particular products.
What would be the benefit or risk of using an existing database? Is it just easier to do it separately or is there a risk with having too many on one domain?
I need help with ‘databasics.’ Can anyone help?
