    We can create multiple database connections easily by providing second database information in application/config/database.php.

    Normally we already set the default database group which is by default. Like this

      $db['default']['hostname'] = "localhost";
        $db['default']['username'] = "root";
        $db['default']['password'] = "";
        $db['default']['database'] = "databasename";

    we can create another database connections by creating a new array name as seconddb just exactly a copy of default group array but replace seconddb instead of default in case of second db.

    $db['seconddb']['hostname'] = "localhost";
    $db['seconddb']['username'] = "root";
    $db['seconddb']['password'] = "";
    $db['seconddb']['database'] = "seconddatabasename";

    Next is we need to send the connection to another variable inside model for second database.

    function mytestmodel_method()
      $otherdb = $this->load->database('otherdb', TRUE);
      $query = $otherdb->select('name')->get('person');
