[resolved] Two sites, One database - Possible? (4 posts)

    We have now grown our website into two.
    One site is the Primary domain on the hosting account (Host Monster); the second is on a subdomain for the same hosting account.
    We have Events Manager installed on the Primary domain. It is a sizable database, and has worked great.
    We would like to have the same information available on both websites. In thinking through options, we are wondering if there is a way to have both sites work from a single database, which would cut our data entry workload in half, or more.
    Question #1: Is that possible?
    Question #2: If is possible, how should it be set up? (Details please)
    Question #3: Is there a better way???

    We looked at that, but it (WP Multisite) doesn't fit what we are trying to do.

    From the WP Codex (Before You Create a network):
    If you plan on creating sites that are strongly interconnected, that share data, or share users, then a multisite network might not be the best solution.

    And that's what we are trying to do is share data and share users.

    I'm hoping to find a way I can aim the EM installed on the second domain (the subdomain) at the database for the first EM install, in a read-only format. But I'm not the greatest at coding.

    This isn't realistically possible i don't think, EM makes use of various tables including the wp_posts and wp_postmeta tables.
