Currently am using vb for my forum. Was thinking if I purchase PP, does it use the same SQL database or I have to create an additional database just for PP?

Tks!

You can do either.

Because VB tends to get rather huge I tend to separate the databases

Placing the databases together can be a little faster since you dont need to select different databases but then again with the first point on large databases its a mute point since trimming down databases can increase speed as well.

Tks for the quick reply.

Just 1 more quick qns. Do you need huge amount of space for the photos? My site currently have 500mb of space. Yea I noe its pathetic :( but for a start would it be enough? :confused:

Yes it good for a start.

I have one smaller gallery with about 500 photos and the data directory is only 52MB
