    I have a social networking site for seniors and am thinking about adding a second chat room for my members.
    I have a dedicated server from Fasthosts and the site runs really quickly at the moment and am keen to keep it that way.
    This may seem like a simple question but would I be better having a completely separate database for the chat room or could it just have tables in my existing Joomla 3 database?
    At present I use and externally hosted chat room, 123 Flash Chat so there is no load on the server.

    Thanks in advance,
    Mike

    Hello,

    You will likely receive more user-feedback on this topic on a forum more suited towards third-party applications such as WebHostingTalk. The forums here are primarily intended for discussions of cPanel/WHM itself.

    Thank you.
