Hello DNN, I'd like to update an existing website to use DNN. The website interacts with a centralized database therefore I'd like all data to be inserted, updated and retrieved from there.
How can I install a module (e.g. shopping cart or logon module) and still use data from the existing database instead of depending on the DNN database tables which are created when the module is installed?
For instance, I want to get the user or product details from the existing database. I don't want to recreate the users nor the products on the DNN database as they already exist.
What are my options in this regard?
Do I have no option but to write my own modules?
