Hi, we have used TheSecretary as a cms for our website, which is hosted on After having added another mysql database suddenly no pages are showing. Is this is a known limitation that there can only be one database?

    Did you add a database to the config file? Or simply to the server?

    It doesn't matter how many databases are active, Secretary will use the one defined in the config file. However, some hosting packages only allow one active database at a time. That may be your issue.
