Wordpress MySQL DB Question

wordpress

#1

Hi,

Can anyone tell me if I install 10 instances of Wordpress on 10 different domains, can I use one MySQL DB for all of them, or do you advice differently?

This will be for 10 of my own domains that will all have wordpress.

Yes, just make sure you use different prefixes for the tables.

It’s really a matter of choice. I prefer to have each in it’s own database for ease of importing/exporting, backups, etc. (I just find it easier to manage), but others may feel differently.

That said, I’ll often combine multiple apps from the same domain in a single database. :wink:
