XF 1.5 Can two XF installations share the same DB?


Well-known member
I'm in the process of brainstorming an idea and whether it can be done depends on whether two separate XF installations can use the same database.

For example:

Installation #1 contains discussion topics and has a URL of www.mysite.com
Installation #2 contains supplier topics and has a URL of suppliers.mysite.com

There would be no duplication of forum names, but users should find a seamless transition between the two sites without having to create an additional account.

The xf_ prefix is hardcoded, so, you wouldn't be able to have 2 XenForo installs in the same database. I believe something like XenCentrals multisite may offer what you're after however.
