Can WP connect to other Databases apart from MySQL (2 posts)

    QUESTION 1 - I am wondering whether WP can work or connect with other databases apart from MySQL. I have not been able to find anything in the Documentation regarding this question.

    QUESTION 2 - Can Wp work with a MySQL database that was created in another system? What we're trying to understand is if WP can be made to manage an existing MySQL database (not its own).

    thank you in advance

    WordPress only uses MySQL. WP can also manage an already existing MySQL database.
