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.

enter image description here

I just want to make sure that this does not have any kind of bad effects.


No problem.

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.

  • I don't have to do any operations on databases manually, the CMS (WordPress) automatically does it. I think there won't be any problem because they are two different databases and two different websites. What do you think? Jul 24 at 1:46
  • @UmerMansoor - Nothing to worry about. (I added some text.)

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' );

explanation for the config file
