  • 2 Forums 1 User Table...

    Interesting problem, and looking for your suggestions.

    This is made kinda hard because vbb doesn't allow you to choose table prefix names or define the names of table in variables (something that I hope happens in vb3).

    My initial thought was you could physically symlink the mysql file of the two user tables but I don't know a lot about this... would this cause an increased risk of corruption or is this safe?

    Or is there a better way of achieving this?

      I doubt vBulletin version 3.x will have prefix_tablename .. I think I read a few topics about this where vB team members mentioned that it won't be likely.

      The core of your question I can not awnser, sorry. I have no experience with that.

        Table prefixes slow down the initial load time because it needs to render the prefix variable first, no?

        Anyway, never, ever say "vbb" around me again. :P

          According to this post vB3 will allow table prefixes.

                Just a question, even though 1 mysql database, it are two forums, does that require two licenses?

                  Since the licence covers the code. yes. i would assume so.
