Joomla 3.6.5 & Magento 2

Is it possible to use the same MySQL to share the data for both of Joomla 3.6.5 and Magento 2? and How? 

 

Can someone show me the steps?

 

Thanks a lot!

Hi @ALTFF,

 

Yes, it's possible.

When you install Magento you can define tables prefix (this will be useful to have a visual separation of tables from two platforms).

Take a look to this screenshot:

In the last field you can use, for example: m2_ , so now, all tables from Magento inside that database will be called m2_something.

Joomla has the same option:

So you can group your tables per platform inside the same database.

Thank you!

 

Can I use the same table prefix name for both platforms? (such as m2_)

What will happen? will create any error?

@ALTFF,

 

You can (in theory). The possible problem could be if both platform has a table with the same name. If not, you're safe.
