3 forums, 1 database, 1 hosting acount.

Post by Smeep »

I'm starting a new website.

This website will be divided in to three smaller websites, each to have their own forum.

however, the host that i use, seems to only let me have 1 database.

Is it possilbe to install 3 seperate installations of phpBB on 1 database? I figure I just need to rename "Prefix for tables in database" but I want to make sure

Wow you're fast!

Do you know where I can find a method that won't share things like users?

I litteraly want it to be as though it's a completely seperate website.

Ok, let me just clarify -

Do I do as advised in the link above and THEN change the prefix, or do I just change the prefix?

All you have to do, is specify different table prefixes during the installation process :)
