Basically, we're trying to migrate a legacy MySQL database into our new wordpress database. I can guide on what tables on the old one are relevant and where they need to go, but the architecture is significantly different. The resource we had working on it was off to a good start and ran several tests, but unfortunately the amount of time he could spend on it was dwindling. I'm trying to get a recap of what he tried and where he was going to at least make things a little less painful.
Like FishPants, I am willing to donate my time for free. I've been doing database programming for the past 7 years on Microsoft SQL servers. I also maintain legacy VB6 code, and occasionally program in .asp and C++. I don't know PHP, but it shouldn't be too hard to figure out (assuming the code is properly commented).
The only migrations I've done have been moving from Microsoft SQL server 2000 to Microsoft SQL server 2005, as well as the occasional server upgrade. But a quick Google search shows that migrating MySQL WordPress databases isn't too complex, just time consuming.
Unless you are currently NOT using WordPress, and would like to move your non-WordPress MySQL database into the WordPress MySQL database format?
