Get Data From Two Different Databases


Recommended Posts

If both databases are on the same server, then you can include the database name as a prefix when querying in mysql, for example:

FROM databaseName.tableName
If you are selecting essentially the same data from both databases you can do a UNION to combine two queries into a single result, eg:

SELECT blah 
FROM databaseOne.tableOne
FROM databaseTwo.tableTwo
Otherwise just issue two separate queries and read the results.


If the databases are on different servers you'll need to open two connections.
