Is it possible to merge parts of a database together?

  • # October 10, 2012 at 4:45 pm

    I look after my sisters Web site and is like to merge part of the stores database with WordPress. The things I’d like to merge is user name, email address, password and maybe a couple others.

    Is this hard to do.

    table name may different, hash type for password too. and maybe a couple others.

    not hard.

    I’m just going to try it on my laptop first using wamp. I’ll try and tell wordpress to use the stores database and see what happens.

    Just going to use wordpress as a cms, and maybe put a blog on the side. I was thinking of allowing commenting, etc.

    you have to write script to merge database structure, therefore you have to study the table structure first.

    once merged to wordpress you can follow how wordpress do things. since it’s designed for building blog off course commenting is allowed.
