I am converting a static html web site to a Wordpress site; that part is taken care of. The current/old site uses CGI to query a MySQL database with movie titles (it's a video rental place). The new WP site is installed at the same web host, but the WP installation has its own MySQL database.
What I need done: I want the movie database searchable from within WP; both the queries and results. I'm not sure if the two MySQL databases should stay separate, or if the movie database should be imported into the WP database. I can supply links to the new and old site by request.
