Do I have to make a new database for each wordpress install if making lots of blogs?

    I am about to make a cluster of self hosted wordpress blogs for energizer. Wordpress is telling me I don't have to have new databases for each but when I just went and logged in it took me to the 1st blog I made.

    I want to make 10+ blogs so should I make a new database for each or is it easier to do it some other way?

    What's the best way to go about it?

    you could go with 1 database and different table prefix for each
    such as wp1_, wp2_ etc

    I just tried the prefix thing, but got the above result. Guess I will give it another go.
