    Hi! I´m very new into blog setups. But i think any of you know how to answer my question here.

    I got a domain. Now i want to setup 10 wordpress blogs on that domain.

    Using example www.domain.com/blog1
    www.domain.com/blog2
    www.domain.com/blog3
    www.domain.com/blog4
    etc... etc..

    Is that possible? Do i need just ONE SQL database for all those, or do i need one for each wordpress installation?

    Regards.

    Doesn't matter how you do it. you can run multiple installations of WP off one database by simply changing the database prefix or you can create a database per blog.

    I'd go with the one database but diff prefix per blog.

    You can use one DB and use different prefixes for each blog, ie

    blog1 => wp1_
    blog2 => wp2_

    etc
