    WordPress & bbPress can be made to use the same database with shared user tables. bbPress requires at least MySQL 4.0

    Is is advisable to use the shared database between wordpress and bbpress?

    Yeah, I believe it’s advisable to use the same database name for an integrated wordpress/bbpress install. bbPress does support using a database name different than an integrated wordpress install, but then your server would have to connect to two different databases (instead of reusing a single connection) when running bbPress. For that reason, I would advise using the same database name.
