View as plain text  

keep the two databases separated,

that is on different mysql database (or schema as they are also called).

If the wordpress blog is on a database named 'wpblog' for example

import your dump in another newly created database.

Could just use those statement in the dump file

CREATE DATABASE `db169254900`;
USE db169254900;

it'll create and use a new database (logic separation / phisical different

You can have all the databases you want in MySQL,

they are just logical separation between tables,

and with MyISAM tables also phisical separation thru folders.
