Setup process for multi-db: Is the global table the 17th? or replacing the 16th?

I am currently reviewing the setup process for multi-db, and need some guidance.

This will give you the instructions needed for mySQL to create your new DBs. (You’re welcome :smiley:)

There is one other table you’ll need to create (2 if you intend to provide a VIP database). To create these tables you’ll just want to copy one of the lines generated from the database tool and use the same root database name with additional tags of “global” (and vip1, vip2, etc if needed). So you’re final output for this line will look something like this:

CREATE DATABASE dbname_global DEFAULT CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci;

In this step, it says, “To create these tables you’ll just want to copy one of the lines generated from the database tool and use the same root database name with additional tags of “global” “

Does this mean that the new total will be 17 databases? or am i replacing one of the original 16? same question for VIP.

    Greetings Chris,

    Thank you for this great question and a significant item to bring up.

    To answer your question directly, yes the “global” database would technically be considered the 17th and the optional VIP database if you choose to use one would then be the 18th.
