  • 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.
