Hi,
I have a program and I want to use it for 3 different applications on the same server. If I use 1 database and 3 lots of tables (named different for each version) is there a problem anybody can see? or would it be better to use 3 seperate databases.

Would a lot of traffic be a problem if I used 1 database?

Thanks

What is a database?

A database is a collection of data that is organized so that its contents can easily be accessed, managed, and updated.


Now I guess the definition might have given u an hint

I use 1 database and 3 lots of tables


Yes u can as long as the tables adds meaning to the DB

Would a lot of traffic be a problem if I used 1 database?


Nops! not really . The trafiic depends on number of request u get and the number ur DB can handle.
