Database sharing more efficient? (3 posts)

    Is installing two (or more) WP installations in one database an advantage or disadvantage when it comes to overall resource usage and efficiency? Ideas?

    I'd say it was a disadvantage as 1 database has to try and run 2 sites simultaneously.

    Makes sense—thank you—I think I'll keep em' separate. What got me thinking about this was at one point I was considering sharing the user table between two blogs (using this method) but for this blog, since I use Disqus for the comments, the only wp users are the authors. I think keeping the db running smooth gets priority.
