Hi there

I am using WPEngine

but the do not allow the use of you Multi-DB plugin. Do you have a host that you recomment that is a fast as WPEngine. can scale like them and allows for you MultiDB pluggin to be used. Also Does user sync and network search work with multi db.

    Greetings Lance,

    Thank you for this great question and bringing this significant issue to our attention.

    It has been explained to me that WP Engine has severely tightened down on what they allow and they do not allow Multi DB and many other things - though I do not have a list of them at my disposal at this time.

    Therefore it is recommended that you consider a new/real web host if you want to do these things like Multi DB and more.

    I do not know of any applications that do not work with Multi DB though they may not always be put in the sub databases speak, they will then end up in the globals database.

    Thank you for being a WPMU Dev Community Member!

    Cheers, Joe
