Two Installs - One database

    Hi

    In cloning portals on Azure, I realise now they have been using the same SQL database/server, and have found some user details are moving between the portals (host details for example)! 

    Should each DNN install have its own database even on a shared server - is that the best practice?

    Plus the portals are behaving strangely in changing how the user experience looks, its almost like they are very slow in adopting changes made. 

    More practically, if planning to scale  to tens of thousands of users, and a lot of extension/functions, is the best architecture to these split out to individual portals and use user athentication to connect them?

      Ken, will be interested to see what info you get here. I have been trying to figure the best way (or if there really is a way) to conveniently use the development slots on Azure. I have not figured out an easy or effective way to use them yet.

        Each DNN install needs its own database. No sharing.

          to solve your current situation without resetting the whole second install, you may clone the database and adjust the connection string in web.config file. You will need to adjust users and content according to your needs.

            Take the learning - this was a mistake in cloning on a Azure set up. Azure suports cloning, and while experimenting, it was possible to make a change to data on one and it came up on the other. Change users picrure or details for example.  However, too risky to use for real. Clone was bined.
