Basic clarification requested please..

Hi Support

I'm reading about your Database Connection Tool which is now part of Data Bridge - and trying to understand the main concepts.

Let's say that I have three different websites and that they each have their own separate database.

You describe what it does:

"One connection file will be automatically generated for you, which can be published to all of your domains. The correct database will then be detected based on the domain your web visitors access."

I have not even connected a single website up to one database just yet, so this is all a little more advanced than where I am up to...

I have successfully uploaded my first example database to the server using a software called MySQLWorkbench, - and I am on a Mac.

All I know so far is that it is one database on a server, that in theory I can connect from a website that I run.

Can I have different databases - ie: one for each site? Should they have logical names for what they are used for?

eg: DB_commerce, DB_registration, DB_email,

Does your Database Connection Tool give me a connection wizard that will connect to one or many databases?

No doubt there is a page on your site which explains the concept of databases and their connections for folk like me who have never worked with them at all. If so please give me a link for this, as I am making small careful steps towards understanding this stuff!
