Multi-DB plugin support for installation

Hello
My host, WP Engine, tells me this plugin cannot be installed with their services. Should I change hosting companies? Can I use multi site and still have thousands of other users sites and databases without this multi-db plugin?
Thanks

    Hello @andrew

    Welcome to WPMU community!

    I hope you are well today and thanks for asking the question.

    If WPEngine doesn't allow you to use this plugin, in that case yes you need to change hosting. Before moving to new hosting, please make sure with your hosting about this.

    Can I use multi site and still have thousands of other users sites and databases without this multi-db plugin?

    Yes, you can. But it will increase the load on your database. Multi DB balances the load uses your one database to multiple databases to balance the load :slight_smile:

    Hope it helps :slight_smile: Please feel free to ask more question if you have any.

    Cheers
