Multiple Sites/Installations- Should I use one database or multiple?
Hello, I’m currently in the middle of setting up wordpress on hostgator. I currently have several sites, that I setup and developed on localhost (WAMPserver). For these sites, I created a mysql database for each site, but I noticed that it did allow me to use one wordpress database for multiple sites.
Now that I’m configuring hostgator, I’m at a loss for whether I should set them up with their own wordpress mysql databases, or individually… what are the differences in regards of security, usability, etc? I’m not even sure why I chose the way I did the first time around lol!
