Ipower Host- Can I host multiple accounts? (5 posts)

    I have been researching blogger software and decided on WordPress. I was willing to change host to get the one click install then found WordPress is available through my host-- Ipower. I tried the one click install and seem to have a problem. Before I go to far I have a question. Can I host multiple accounts with Iporwer or do they provide WordPress for one user? Thanks,

    The one-click install only provides a blog for one user. You can, of course, install one blog for each user if you install each blog in different directories (and assuming that iPower offers no limit to their MySQL databases). You will need one directory and one MySQL database per blog.

    Weeel, technically you really only need one database, as long as you change the table prefix setting before running the install.

    When you install WordPress manually, there are several techniques to using only one database, but most one-click installers include database creation as part of their routine, so I doubt that using only one database is possible when using a one-click installer.

    Another reason I'll never ever use a 3rd party installer.
