Sorry for the delay in my reply. I have recently returned from a vacation.

What if I want to set up: a forum, a couple of glossaries and a guestbook? Will *each* of them *need at least one MySQL database*?
Some CGI scripts require a database, others don't. You should be notified whether a script will require a database before you set it up. One guestbook CGI requires a database, for example, while the other one stores all of its data in a text file and thus does not require a database.
All in all, one database for data storage seems scanty. Would it be feasible to *allow 3 or 2 databases* in the upcoming _basic_ hosting system?
I've changed the standard hosting package to include 2 MySQL databases.
Anyway, the contents of these databases obviously already count toward the 100MB total limit of site data held on the hosting server.
Are all types of dynamic site-related data (i.e., the data other than pages, images, etc.) stored in MySQL databases, or are there other options as well regarding the format of storage?
Not all scripts require a database--see the description for each script to find out if it requires one.
I hope this helps.
