MT and WP co-existing in single MySQL db?

  • I’d like to install WordPress, but I have others’ blogs running on MT with a MySQL backend. At present I only have access to the one MySQL db.
    So. Can WP and MT coexist in a single MySQL db?

  • As long as the tables names are all different.

    Yeah… I currently have my WP tables, my old MT tables, my coppermine tables, among others all sitting in my one MySQL db (my hosting provider only allows 1). You don’t really have to worry about overlap because WordPress prefixes all its table names with wp_, while MT tables use mt_ for the default prefix… so unless you change the defaults, you’re good to go.

    Very cool. Thanks for the quick answers!
