Work with my own database in WordPress

I don´t know if this was question before but...

I want to migrated a web page to wordpress; but when I´m doing the test I can´t create or import the database that I have to the phpMyAdmin that came with the GoDaddy plan that we buy it

Do I have to upgrade to another plan or maybe is a way to do it without buying a new one?

Sorry for my English this is not my home languaje but I understand something by reading it

Re: Work with my own database in WordPress

Depending on what you are moving from to WordPress the content has a different migration path @bettelli. I can tell you that moving a database from one platform to another is a bit of a task. What is your current website running on and coded in? 

 

...turns out that my two cents is worth less or more depending on the current exchange rate.

Re: Work with my own database in WordPress

I've had a web design and development business for more than a decade and I would not guarantee that kind of outcome in that situation. When migrating from Joomla, Blogger, Tumblr, Weebly to WordPress there is a process and scripts. Normally what these scripts do is map like fields and allow you to import your data into WordPress. I don't know your database but the same thing would be necessary. 

 

Perhaps you'd be better off duplicating than migrating?
