Having Multiple Installs of Vanilla in one database

Hello. I use a free hosting service that limits me to two databases. I learned you can put multiple installs of platforms in one database which I should have figured out at first. But I came upon a situation where I have to put two installs of VANILLA in one database, and if you're familiar with the Vanilla Install, you'll probably know that you can't choose a table prefix in the install. How would I be able to install 2 installs of Vanilla in one database?

    Just change the table prefix 'GDN' in the config-default before you start the installation

    To be more concrete, open the file /conf/config-defaults.php, search for "GDN_" and change the corresponding line to something like that
    $Configuration['Database']['DatabasePrefix'] = 'VTest_';
