I am just getting started with WordPress and I have a customer asking for a new website. On that website they want a connection to an external application with data on mssql.
This might be more of an sql-programming issue than a WordPress-issue, but I have to start somewhere. I know that WordPress is running mysql so I wonder if there will be a conflict.
My next question is: do you think I can do this myself or do I have to hire a web programmer (sql-programmer). I know html and css, but not sql. Although I have enough knowledge to manage and understand ready scripts in several language even though I cant make them myself.
