Will Multi-DB plugin help with single blog with DB over 1GB?

Hi,
I have a standard WP blog that has grown due to thousands of posts to over 1GB. Will installing Multi-DB help in any way, or only useful for WP installs with multiple separate blogs setup?

Many thanks for any insights.

    Greetings vincent2,

    Multi DB only works on MultiSite installations and has no benefits to single WordPress installations.

    However, even if it were a MultiSite installation, there would be no advantage still because all the users are in one blog/database.

    The advantage of Multi DB is given for Multi Sites because it has separate DB's for each site split among several databases rather then WordPress having to churn through one massive DB looking for and addressing each sites data.

    Have you optimized your current database?

    What kind of hosting are you using?

    Please advise.

    Cheers, Joe
