I noticed i only allowed to have 1 database!! Why on earth is this. With a webserver with 1000MB of space you can't expect to have little sites running that dont use any databases! I just need more! :mad:

What a simple solution.

One database per account! I guess a restriction on the number of tables should apply as well:D

Then, naturally, the next step is to have a records storage surcharge. A nickel a record seems fair. Perhaps a dime per record if the table has more than 10 fields?

ah, great, thanks. I've just emaild them and said i want my money back. lol. They have a 30 day money back guarantee, but there's some tricks behind that too. It has be a shared hosting plan, which i think i have, and then i have to fill in some sort of form, but i cant seem to find this order number they're talking about, even thouh i paid by credit card.

I'm all wired now, lol. If this doesnt work , i may need to do everything in HTML! oy, the thought of it alone....

A bit more work, but if you are stuck, just run multiple tables for your different dynamic elements.

Right... not so much into the dynamic pages yet. but thats ok ;) I'm learning more php every day, so thats good. I'll figure out a way to get it working if they dont want to give me back my money. It's just a lot easier to have databases.

I've jsut heard that it is possible to use one database for multiple applications. I don't know yet how it works, but if the refunding doesnt work i may just have to try that.

It is really quite simple.

All you have to make sure of is that two different applications don't use the same table name.

Most popular apps normally give you an option upon install to prefix the table names with any characters you like. Else, you can just modify the config file.

As en example, you could install your BBS with a bbs_ prefix before all of the tables. Your shopping cart with ecom_ as the prefix. That way, commonly used table names (like id, users, admin , etc...) would all be unique to the specific applications.

It is yes but not ideal solution at all
