  • Using VB with 2 SQL databases?

    We are going to get the latest version of VB and one of my questions is:

    Our webspace provider gives us 25 SQL databases but each has a limit of 1GB.
    Besides the usual forum stuff we are going to offer also member picture galleries.
    Don't want to exceed at some point the limits of the database and therefore is it possible with VB to have the Thread, Posts, PM's etc. stored in one database and the Pictures in another?

    Thanks for any help

    You do not need a database for the pictures,they can be stored as files.


    vB5 is unequivocally the best forum software, but not yet...

      Thank you for the quick reply!
      If I understood you well and the pictures are saved as files we still would be able to offer a section called "Members picture gallery" where other members can browse the gallery and look at all the pictures a member has stored?

        Yes, it has no effect on functionality where the pictures are stored.
        Vote for:

        - *Admin Settable Paid Subscription Reminder Timeframe*
        -
        *PM - Add ability to reply to originator only*
        - Add Admin ability to auto-subscribe users to specific channel(s)
        - "Quick Route" Interface...
