    How to migrate or experiment? Link to this post

    Hi,

    Thanks for this nice looking CMS..

    This is my situation, I would like to migrate/experiment on one of my existing sites with your CMS. Would like to get your inputs prior to proceeding..

    The existing site is built ground up, with PHP and Mysql..

    It has a entire DB schema and also PHP programming to do CRUD.

    New data for the site is imported using a periodic cron command.

    My questions:

    1. How would I start looking into using Silverstripe?
    2. Can I use my existing tables or do I need to re-create?

    I like the clean look and feel of SS
    I am a newbie in MVC..

    Thanks for any inputs!!

    Cheers,

    4DWinner

    You'll need to recreate your tables, and import the data into them to take advantage of everything SilverStripe has to offer.
