Re: Can one instance of Mojo Portal run across multiple databases?

oops.  One more thing though.  You said that you use MySQL so that you don't have to deal with CPU or ram constraints.  How is the best way to calculate it since SQL Server is ultimately easier to deal with, and since it's integrated right in, if I have a small site and a small community, does the one CPU and one gig Ram really matter in the end?  You tell me that it would run fine, and that SQl Server wouldn't use the other resources.  And not to mention, in the context of Mojo Portal, what is stored in the database?  Is it just the user names and passwords of the users, or is it like everything on the site, or what?  Thanks.

Hi Katherine,

Honestly, until your site grows to thousands of users and visitors, the limits of SQL Server Express will not even be noticed.

mojoPortal stores pretty much everything except images and other BLOBs in the database. All content, pages, settings, users, passwords are in the database. One module that may cause some confusion is the Shared Files Module, the files you upload using that module are stored in the filesystem but all of the metadata (version history, description, downloads, etc...) for the files are stored in database.

HTH,
Joe D.
