    Ok, I have a question that is probably pretty stupid, but here goes.

    Can more than one program share a MySQL database?

    For example, could I have a banner rotator and a newsletter program running on the same database?

    I am thinking no, but I just want to make sure before I purchase a newsletter creator I am looking at.

    Thanks

    Yes they can, if the tables have unique names. A lot of programs will put a preface on the tables they create to prevent conflicts. i.e. phpNuke adds nuke_ to the beginning of the tables it creates and a links program I have adds links_ to the table names.
