All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.
I have a WordPress website and I cloned it to another website(domain) using a plugin called Duplicator. So in the backend, phpMyAdmin, I’ve two different databases but all the tables in both databases have the same names.
I just want to make sure that this does not have any kind of bad effects.
How to solve :
I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.
USE mumer_watches; SELECT ... FROM wp58_posts
will refer, unambiguously, to the table
mumer_watches.wp58_posts. Ditto for
SELECT ... FROM mumer_watches.wp58_posts
Assuming this is WordPress, well, that’s the way it works.
word press has a variable for the database, as long as you have the configuration correct it will apply to all script automatically.
So you have no worries about which database you are using
// ** MySQL settings - You can get this info from your web host ** // /** The name of the database for WordPress */ define( 'DB_NAME', 'database_name_here' );
