    Hi, I have an idea for a website I’d like to create. I am already making some content and I am looking for the right hosting for me. I think I have found one, but it only offers a single database, although it has unlimited size.

    My question is: If I install wordpress and start posting some articles now, will I be able to later add forum functionality using the same database? Or do I need to install wordpress in a specific way so it would allow for that in the future? Or would I need to pay for additional database?

    The provider I am looking at has great pricing, but adding second DB would almost double it.

    Thanks for any answers.

    Hi there,

    Looks like you’re in the wrong forum. It appears that you’re referring to the open-source WordPress.org software and you need to seek help at these forums:

    These forums are for WordPress.com hosted sites only. If you want to know more about the differences between WordPress.com and WordPress.org you can read this document:
