If you run each wiki under its own database, you just need to point
each wiki to its respective db and leave the table_prefix setting in

wikis, as it's easier to back up and maintain.)

If you choose to use the same database, you'll need to ensure that
each wiki has its own table_prefix value.

Also, you will probably want to ensure each wiki generates cookies
unique for that wiki (otherwise, someone trying to access two wikis on
the same browser will run into issues).  To do this, ensure that each
wiki has its own wiki_suffix value (this is appended to the cookie
