    Configuration Database:- Whenever we installed the sharepoint on any machine then the installation files automatically creates an configuration database. where all the configurations of sharepoint were installed.

    Content Database:- Whenever we create any site collection. After creating a web application. then the content database will create.  which contains all the information regarding that particular site collection.

    Conclusion:- There can be only one configuration database on a machine. But can be multiple content database on single machine.

    tell me if u understand the difference betwn. both the database. vote as helpful. :)
