Help with a simple mysql query

I'm new to mysql and I wondered if I could run 2 php based systems using the one mysql database.

My host has only given me one mysql db, I cannot create another..

I'm running php auction gpl and I want to run php nuke for the homepage, both require a db!

Can I do this? will it screw my first db? are there any ways around it without taking out another hosting plan.

As long as the table names aren't the same, you can use the same DB.

And Welcome to WW!

Many LAMP applications have a "table prefix" setting in their configuration to ensure that they don't collide with other applications using the same database.

I would be surprised if Postnuke didn't have these feature.

Thanks BCO!

I will check that and see how it goes...
