Multiple WordPress Databases – Which one am I using?
I am responsible for maintaining and updating a WordPress site for a small company. I didn’t setup the initial installation.
Our WordPress is currently version 3.2.1. I am in the process of updating the site to 3.5, but am backing up our files and database first.
To my surprise, when I logged in to our Web Host Account (GoDaddy), I found 6 databases, all similarly named.
For example: Company; CompanyWordPress; CompanyWordPressNew; WordPress
This has confused me. Is there a way to determine which database is being used by our website? I can back up all 6 databases, but if something were to happen… I wouldn’t know which database to re-install.
Hopefully, with your help, I can determine which single database is in use and delete the remaining 5 inactive databases.
