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!
Solved! Go to Solution.
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.
Can I use the same table prefix name for both platforms? (such as m2_)
What will happen? will create any error?
You can (in theory). The possible problem could be if both platform has a table with the same name. If not, you're safe.
