    Hi there,
    I’m rebuilding a client site in WP and we need to migrate all their products etc to the new website.
    Does the magento and WP need to be on the same server for this plugin to work? Or can I pull the megento data out from the old site?
    thanks
    Karl

    They don’t need to be on the same server.
    If Magento and WordPress are not installed on the same host, you can do this:

    – export the Magento database to a SQL file (with phpMyAdmin for example)
    – import this SQL file on the same database as WordPress
    – run the migration by using WordPress database credentials (host, user, password, database) instead of the Magento ones in the plugin settings. You can find the WordPress credentials in the wp-config.php file.

    Thanks for that.

    Will the import over-write the existing website data, or just add the imported data (we need products, categories, blog posts only)?
