I would like to switch the database in sitecore between master and core database. I was able to do this in older versions of sitecore by selecting from dropdown at the bottom right, but in the sitecore 8 that dropdown missing. I searched everywhere but could find anything about switching database. Did anyone else faced this issue? Thanks in advance!
I have installed sitecore 8 in my machine and it is working fine. Now I want to install Sitecore 7.5 on the same machine without disturbing the sitecore 8 instance. I have read that it is possible to run multiple instances of Sitecore on same machine, but how does SQL server databases are used by the two instances.
