How to do an Insert into Select with inner joins (on wordpress db) in different database

Hello

I need to manually copy from data from one wordpress site from another.
This is the query to retrieve my data

SELECT *
FROM wp_posts AS p
INNER JOIN wp_term_relationships tr ON p.id = tr.object_id
INNER JOIN wp_term_taxonomy tt ON tt.term_taxonomy_id = tr.term_taxonomy_id
INNER JOIN wp_terms t ON t.term_id = tt.term_id
WHERE tt.Taxonomy =  "Category" AND t.Name = 'Some Category"

I was wondering if there was an easy way to turn this into an INSERT into SELECT statement for a different database. The tables will naturally be exactly the same in the other database as its a wordpress database. The other database is on the same server.

Please do not recommend a plugin :)

Thanks very much in advance

I don't think you can do it in one go, but you can do a SELECT INTO OUTFILE to save your query's results into a file and then LOAD DATA INFILE in the other db.

SELECT * 
FROM wp_posts AS p
INNER JOIN wp_term_relationships tr ON p.id = tr.object_id
INNER JOIN wp_term_taxonomy tt ON tt.term_taxonomy_id = tr.term_taxonomy_id
INNER JOIN wp_terms t ON t.term_id = tt.term_id
WHERE tt.Taxonomy =  "Category" AND t.Name = 'Some Category"
INTO OUTFILE "out.sql"

Open in new window


HTH,
