Database Qns

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.
