Simple mysql question (5 posts)

    I've got a new to php question. Do I need to have multiple mysql databases in order to have a wordpress blog and a coppermine (or other) gallery running? My host says I only have one mysql database, and I don't know if it'll be enough. What if I decide to later add on a forum or guestbook?

    No you can have multiple PHP scripts (and even multiple installations of WordPress) in the same database.

    So, what's the point of having multiple databases? Probably a dumb question, but I'm new to all of this. Thanks.
