PHP in wordpress

I have a PHP part generator that was created and now they are moving the site to wordpress.  How do I go about moving the generator to the wordpress site?  I moved the folder and the database.  The generator is currently at http://sagemetering.com/applicationsdata/ .  Currently I am having no luck getting this to work.  ANy help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Although that's not nearly enough info, I suspect that you won't get it to work as part of Wordpress.  At the very least, you would have to redesign the theme where the display code is and find some way to resolve the differences between your CSS and javascript and that used by Wordpress.

I was afraid of that.  Any suggestions would be most helpful.

There's no real magic to porting over PHP code to WordPress.  Most of the time you just need to make custom page templates and copy the code over to the template.  You can add custom CSS or JavaScript required to make things work in a number of different ways.

This is just not accurate.  WordPress is made with PHP...normal PHP code runs fine.  The only things you need to be aware of are:

1) You have to embed your custom code in a template.  You cannot stick it in the visual editor.

2) You will need to globalize variables if you expect to pass data around

3) If your app has lots of javascript, you will want to use a WordPress function (wp_enqueue_script) to call it properly.

If I understand you correctly, the link above is from "Site A" (the soon to be old site) and you copied over the applicationdata folder to "Site B" (the WP site).

If that is the case, I would expect it to work if you access it as:
http://thenewsite.com/applicationsdata/index.php

Does it?  If yes, then try routing the requests for "/applicationdata/" to "/applicationdata/index.php" via the .htaccess file:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^/applicationsdata/?$ applicationsdata/index.php [NC,QSA,L]

# the rest of your rules follow

Hello,

You shouldn't need to change anything. Wordpress is just a content management system. As along as the Part Generator worked as a standalone item previously you should be able to create a directory in the root of your site called part-generator or something similar, place all of the code for the part generator into that folder, and then include the part generator in any page you want using an iframe.
