Thread: MySQL newbie question

    MySQL newbie question

    I just started learning MySQL a little and i have a little question.

    Is it true that for my own website 1 database is enough?

    Just for everything like a guestbook and a shoutbox etc. i have to make another table? Is that correct or am i tottally wrong?

    Another one my server haves MySQL and thats the way i want to work now
    While learning i downloaded a flash guestbook for mySQL and the PHP script starts with:

    $DBhost = "localhost"; // Database Server
    $DBuser = "root"; // Database User
    $DBpass = ""; // Database Pass
    $DBName = "turorials"; // Database Name
    $table = "guestbook"; // Database Table

    what do i have to fill in if i have an external mySQL browser? The name of my website which is combined with my MySQL database?

    Thank you

    not quite sure what you are asking at the bottom. But one database is usually more then enough for a single site. you would undoubtable have a lot of tables but all in a single database.
