Do i need Multi-db?

My goal is around 1000 - 2500 blogs. The instructions say that it´s wise to make the Multi-db if i get 5000 blogs.

Is there any difference between single or multi-db in performance if i have 1000 blogs?

    Hey there, hope you are well. :slight_smile:

    As a guide:

    1-5,000 blogs/sites you should be fine with your WordPress default database

    5,000 - 50,000 blogs/sites - go with 16 databases

    50,000 - 100,000 blogs/sites - use 256 databases

    100,000+ blogs/sites - use 4096 databases

    Is there any difference between single or multi-db in performance if i have 1000 blogs?

    Really depends on your MySQL. Spreading the connections over multiple DBs could help speed as then not so many connections to one server are required. But using a decent server should see you through as well.

    Hope that helps. :slight_smile:

    Take care.
