Can mySQL database control multiplied blogs on server (not web hosting)? (4 posts)

    I am newbie with everything but I somewhat managed to put blog together. Now I have question about mySQL database on server. I wonder if it is possible to control multiplied blogs/sites with one database? I do not know how it works, because if I set one database with one table, every field will be used for one blog/site, but with many blogs, every field will be "repeated" on every blog. so how s it possible to do many blogs/sites with just one database? I thought about using different tables for different blogs/sites - not too sure how it works.

    will appreciate any help.

    you can use specific table prefixes per blog so that the blogs know which tables are theirs.

    Look into your wp-config.php file.
    There is a line for the table prefix, e.g. wp_
    For consecutive installs in the same DB you just have to change the prefix
    And every blog requires the upload of the WP files in their own directory.
    But you can always go to the Codex and find what you need: Installing_Multiple_Blogs#Single_Database
