on the shared database as well.
For instance, our MediaWiki installs at mpkb.net
structured as follows:
english wiki (/en) DB mpkbnet_wiki, prefix en_ (en_archive, en_brokenlinks,
spanish wiki (/es) DB mpkbnet_wiki, prefix es_ (es_archive, es_brokenlinks)
user for mpkbnet_wiki = mpkbnet_mpkbnet
If you're using prefixes, you may also need to set $wgSharedUploadDBprefix.
(You did look in DefaultSettings.php for all the available settings, right?)
I've never tested it with prefixes, so can't guarantee it'll work properly.
But still, I can't see how one wiki would be able
to access DB information
for the other "commons" wiki.
You can access as many databases on the server as you like, as long as the user
has permissions for them.
