Re: WP and BBpress in 2 separate dbs?
My dbs are limited to 100MB and I’ve watched a spam attack add 20-40MB in a heartbeat on WordPress alone. Granted part of the solution is having SpamKarma purge more frequently.
I was concerned that if I added bbpress to the same database, and if it received any significant traffic, that I would find myself faced with running out of space in my database.
Naturally, the solution seems to be to have wordpress and bbpress use two separate databases but pull user information from the wordpress db. (Or find a hosting provider that doesn’t limit the db size to 100mb)
