Connect to WordPress Data in Aqua Data Studio

Access WordPress data from tools in Aqua Data Studio such as the Visual Query Builder and the Table Data Editor.

The CData JDBC Driver for WordPress integrates WordPress data with wizards and analytics in IDEs like Aqua Data Studio. This article shows how to connect to WordPress data through the connection manager and execute queries.

Create a JDBC Data Source

You can use the connection manager to define connection properties and save them in a new JDBC data source. The WordPress data source can then be accessed from Aqua Data Studio tools.

  1. In Aqua Data Studio, select Register Server from the Servers menu.
  2. In the Register Server form, select the 'Generic - JDBC' connection.
  3. Enter the following JDBC connection properties:
    • Name: Enter a name for the data source; for example, WordPress.
    • Driver Location: Click the Browse button and select the cdata.jdbc.wordpress.jar file, located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
    • Driver: Enter the Driver's class name, cdata.jdbc.wordpress.WordPressDriver.
    • URL: Enter the JDBC URL, which starts with jdbc:wordpress: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties. You will find information on the required connection string options in the help documentation. A typical JDBC URL is below:

      jdbc:wordpress:Url=http://www.yourwordpresshost.com;
  4. To connect to WordPress, set the URL property and other authentication properties. WordPress supports Basic (User and Password) and OAuth2.0 authentication, though Basic is recommended for a testing environment only. To connect with OAuth you will need to register an app with WordPress.

    See the Getting Started guide in the CData driver documentation for more information.
