I hope I get the terminology right. I am not sure merge is what I want,
so let me describe what I need.
I have a sql dump from a db that is a mediawiki. I cannot upgrade the
software on the old server and need to move it to a new server. I have
only one db available to me on the new server that currently holds a
wordpress blog. As I understand it this should be no problem as long as
the table names do not conflict, right?
I know the command for restoring the db from the mysql command prompt.
First, I want to make sure that doing
mysql -p <dbname> < dump.sql
is not going to hose the current db. Next I want to find out if there
is an easy way to change the table names. I need the tables prefixed
with the wiki name.
Can anyone help me to figure out the easiest and safest way to
accomplish this? If any more information is needed I can get it for
you, I'm sure.
Thanks in advance for any help or pointers to relevant documentation,
