Moving a SQLServer database to WordPress

  • Hi. I’m new to WordPress and am used to working in SQLServer. I have an existing database that I would like to make accessible through my new WordPress site but I can’t find how to transfer an existing SQLServer database into WordPress. I can find the WordPress existing structure and I can modify my database extensively to come close to the WP data structure, but I will still have additional fields in the post table that I want to migrate as well. Ideas on where I should start to make this happen? Thanks.

  • Any additional information that relates to posts should be in the wp_postmeta table. Any “extra” fields added to the wp_posts table won’t be recognised by the default WordPress installation so you’d need to write your own functionality to use them.
