  • Am I just screwed.

    Is there a way I can manipulate the values in the tables of the database to point it to the new name? I can’t think of any other way for me to get in there and change the name.

    bbPress 1.0 and WordPress 2.8.2

    It’s not the database in the bb-config.php file that changed. It was the Worpress 2.8.2 database that got migrated.

    https://trac.bbpress.org/ is pretty neat. Thanks for that.

    chrishajer, are you aware of the code in bbPress which takes the _wp table(required upon WordPress and bbPress integration) and somehow uses it in integration? If so, that might be a solution.

    I found a a program which takes two MySql tables and makes a table consisting of those two tables contents. Here it’s description:

    MySQL Join Two Tables Software 7.0 – Download

    Combine (horizontally) two MySQL tables into one based on a common column of data from each table. The original two tables are not altered but a new table is created with the results.

    I don’t think this will work however because of the multiple references to wp_users, and bb_users.

    I just thought of something, would it work if I changed apltest’s users table to be called wp_users(or bb_users)(along with changes all references to the users table in the APL code to wp_users)?

    Thanks for your input.


    Here are two links to the whole apltest database(2.jpg starts off down the table list where 1.jpg left off):


    So I logged into phpMyAdmin and did not see anything that looked like table prefixes, but I’m new to this. I saw two databases and this is what one of their structures looked like:

    Table Action Records1 Type Collation Size Overhead

    benchmarks 6 MyISAM utf8_general_ci 2.3 KiB –


    All I need to do is make it so that users don’t have to create two accounts to access the Tournaments section of the site.

    And how would you get that relationship?

    More direction please. 8)

    I’m trying to link my wonderful WordPress blog and bbPress Forum(live @ http://www.l4dt.com/) with some wonderful tournament management code(testing, but live @ http://www.a-mnow.com) and have already quite shyed away and scared myself at the thought of trying to connect any two databases, so direction at all would be great.

    Here’s what the tournament management _config.php file consists of:




    //This is the new config file, almost all settings have been moved to the database.

    //You no longer need to edit this file,

    //unless the installer is not able to edit this file because of permissions.

    //Just run the installer at /install/install.php

    //Database server connection settings

    $database = ‘mysql’;

    $database = ‘apltest’;

    $database = ‘?????????????????’;

    $database = ‘apltest’;

    $database = ‘p50mysql71.secureserver.net’;

    //Do not change strict_mode, unless you know what you are doing

    $database = -1;



    ^ There is no table specification!? wtf, but that’s not how you link databases, by giving them the same table prefix, right? But does it have to do with the table(s)?(I’d think so, but that’s all I can fathom)


    Here is the link to the site which gave me the tournament management code, “Autonomous LAN Party”:



    Any hint at making that relationship would be most excellent.

    Thank you for your time and input.
