Doubts about DB / forum set up
I'm part of team working on a site for a non-profit cause. We are planning to attach forum to the site. The site uses wordpress and is hoisted our site on a shared server. Below are my doubts
Once we start to use vanilla where will be out forums data be stored. Is it in currently hoisted server or of vanilla's server.
If say the forums data will be stored in our current server, then how we can configure the schema; will any scripts will be provided or anything else ?
In general can anyone advise/provide pointers to resources on how to setup a forum by a novoice
Thanks for reading my queries with much patience and please feel free to ask any questions that would make it easy for you to clarify my doubts.
