Migrating data from sql-NOT a wp site to a new Buddypress
Existing Site: cancer survivor community cancermatch.com
Exists since last 7-8 years; created by an amature web designer using php-mysql. I have is access to .sql dumps of individual tables of the existing database.
The current website only provides simple functionality to accept data from users through a form [typical form consisting of First Name, Last Name, health status, Branch, age, etc.).
What I have done so far:
Created a buddypress powered site on a staging url. Before I take it to the Internet, I need to import the data of existing users from existing database to the new buddypress site.
To keep the things simple, I have replicated the input fields of existing website into my buddypress site.
I want to have all the old information imported to my new buddypress site’s database so that the old users do not have to re-register on the new website.
Is there a way to solve the problem? Please suggest
