Hi everyone, I hope someone can help with a question I have about using other PHP scripts within my protected area. I have a site that has a public and members only area. In the protected members only section I want to incorporate several features such as a calendar of events, voting polls etc., all of which use a MySQL database and all are written in PHP using installation scripts that automatically create the database tables etc. I am looking at creating my site in two sections - public access and members only. I will then install aMember (or get Alex to do it) and protect the members only area of my site. Once that has all been configured, I would then install the calendar and make it available on a members page - same with the voting polls. My question relates to using the aMember database (probably with new table entries??) rather that having to use multiple MySQL databases. I am concerned that if I integrate the calendar or voting polls into my site and attempt to use the aMember database (even if the install script for the calendar creates new table entries), that I will possibly jeopardise the database integrity and/or end up destroying the aMember tables. For stability, should I use a separate database on my web host or would using the single aMember database be fine? If anyone could help me with this it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks - and have a good weekend! Scott Nolan.
