Hey... basically i like using the silverstipe platform its just what people i work with want, but i can easily see an issue coming up later...

basically with the requirement of a database on any install, is there a way to implement multi installs on one database or is it a seperate DB jobby?

Usually, SilverStripe requires one DB per install. You can manage different Sites with just one SilverStripe installation (= 1 DB) with the [url=]subsites module[/url].

AFAIK there's no table prefix that can be set..
