update 16 to 256 multidb db

Right now I have setup the my site with 16 db
but now I want to change it 16 to 256.
Can you please let me know the way how can I do this.

    Just out of curiosity how many subsites do you have? There's no easy way to do this (no way at all built into the plugin). The tables are created with an md5 hash that is based on the number of databases. So the database names are all actually different on a 256 install than a 16. You'd have to write something custom to change the database names and create new config files.

    That's not easy or for the feint of heart! You'll want to find a system admin to help you here if it's necessary. Note that 16 databases should be more than adequate for 50,000+ sites.

    Hope this helps. Let us know if you need anything further!
