Multiple MYSQLs on a single server?

Hi Everyone,
Im putting this question in off topic, because its not my area of study at all, but find it a fascinating question. Does MYSQL run multiple instances on a single server? For example, if two different users want to install their own installation of wiki (with default configurations), would the wikis 'collide' with each other?

    By no means an expert on this. From what I understand you can do:
    Multiple sites, one MySQL instance, one database, same server
    Multiple sites, one MySQL instance, multiple databases, same server
    Multiples sites, multiple MySQL instances, multiple databases, same server

    I believe the limitations are more about MySQL not being able to deal with too many simultaneous connections rather than getting queries tangled up in too many MySQL instances/databases, so to speak. Too many being like a hundred.
