Hey all - I've got a site with several scripts / programs installed that each have their own DB. The site is getting to be kind of slow, and I think (correct me if I'm wrong) that part of the issue might be that for each user, the server ends up having to open multiple database connections.
For example - I have a database for phpbb and wordpress. I also have a db for some custom site stuff.
Does it make sense to put all the tables into one 'master' database? That way, in theory, a user is just opening up one call to the db.
