Support » Fixing WordPress » New Website / Existing MSSQL Database

  • Resolved NevNic


    Hi All

    Not sure if this is the right forum?

    [ Moderator note: moved to Fixing WordPress. ]

    I am about to develop a new website for a client using a WP theme (not selected yet).

    There is a legacy website which will eventually be replaced, hosted on HostDepot.
    The hosting package at present is Windows based and part of the options is an MSSQL database.

    The MSSQL database runs on a separate server to the website. It is connected via the client database application for syncing using adodb. It is connected from the website using classic asp ADODB connection.

    I am unsure how to read the database using WordPress which, presumably, should be Linux based. The Linux based package option does not offer an MSSQL database.

    To continue to use the MSSQL database would we have to keep the Windows subscription? Will it be necessary to have two hosting packages, one Windows, one Windows? If so, how would the two services interconnect?

    Any advice will be appreciated.

    Thank you.
