Does every wordpress local install need a seperate database and username?
Just curious if every wordpress local install need a seperate database and username in MAMP? I'm gonna start setting up other wordpress sites now and I was just curious! Thanks!
Yes and no.
Tables in a database yes, you can separate them with different prefixes but user could be the same for all local.
This is advised only for local. For a dev/staging or production server you would not want to do that. You would setup different users for each one then give them access to it and it only.
