mysql database, use new or existing?

  • Hi,

    I have a wordpress site running now but need to know if I want to add the forum, do I need to create a new mysql database on my server or can I just use the existing database my current wordpress installation is using? I was not sure if I could fill out the same data in bb-config.php as I did in the wp-config.php file from wordpress.

  • Yup, you can use the same database as your current wordpress install – in fact, you have to in order to integrate the user data:

    http://bbpress.org/documentation/integration-with-wordpress/

    “bbPress can share user data with an existing WordPress installation. All you need to do is specify the location of that database on installation or afterwards in the “WordPress Integration” section of the “Settings” area in your bbPress admin.”

    Thank you very much for your answer, my forum is up and running now.
