Can two AbantCarts use the same database?
« on: May 20, 2022, 01:53:18 PM »
Hello!
I have to reinstall several AbanteCart installations due to a hack and virus on the server from old backups.
It appears two installations share the same MySql database? Is that possible!
One was a subdomain of the other. I seem to remember adding the second as an add-on to the first...but that was 4yrs ago...so memory is unreliable. I don't want to risk trying it until I know.
Many thanks!

Hello.
If you have multistore setup https://abantecart.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/AD/pages/8028306/Multi-store
or in case you install AbanteCart with a different table prefix to the old database where some tables were present.
