WordPress is a free, open-source content management system (CMS) paired with a MySQL or MariaDB database. WordPress stores content and enables users you to create and publish web pages using a domain and hosting service.

The details associated with the content in WordPress are stored as Events in the MySQL database. For example, posts, users, and comments. You can replicate the Events data from your WordPress account to a Destination database or data warehouse using Hevo Pipelines.

Note: You must provide the MySQL database details to configure the WordPress Source.

Schema and Primary Keys

The schema is derived based on the data in your MySQL Source tables.

Data Model

The following is the list of tables (objects) that are created at the Destination when you run the Pipeline:

Object Description
wp_commentmeta Contains the list of metadata associated with the comments.
wp_comments Contains the list of all comments within WordPress.
wp_links Contains the list of links entered into the Links feature of WordPress. (This feature has been deprecated, but can be re-enabled with the Links Manager plugin.)
wp_options Contains the list of options set under the Administration > Settings panel. See Option Reference for options name and default values.
wp_postmeta Contains the metadata associated with the posts. Some plugins may add their own information to this table.
wp_posts Contains the list of the posts. Pages and navigation menu items are also stored in this table.
wp_terms Contains the categories for both posts and links, along with the tags for posts.
wp_termmeta Contains the metadata associated with the terms.
wp_term_relationships Contains the association of posts with categories and tags in the wp_terms table. Also, it contains the association of links with their respective categories.
wp_term_taxonomy Contains the taxonomy, such as category, link, or tag, for the entries in the wp_terms table.
wp_usermeta Contains the metadata associated with users.
