My website uses a standard HTML template and a mySQL database with about ten different tables. Would it be a bad idea to import my database into a new WordPress database and for me to start using WordPress as a platform? For example, I already have a users table, and I’m not sure how that would mess/jive with the users table inside the WordPress database.
Would I still modify my PHP pages in an app like Coda? Or would I start doing code changes within the WordPress backend? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, as I would prefer to hear upfront from the experts before I invest tons of time trying to make something like this work, only to find out later that it was not a good idea from the beginning.
