A MySQL DB within a MySQL DB
I have a client who does not want to switch hosting providers. This provider only allows one database per client. I am setting up a sandbox for the client and do not wish to share the database across the sandbox and the production website. Can I place a database within a database for the sandbox website? If so, I would like some recommendations on how to do this and how I would have WordPress access the nested database.
