Magento database in sync with external MySQL database

Hi all,

At the moment I have an exsisting Point of Sale system which uses an external mysql database.

I would like to build a Magento webshop which is in sync with our POS, it’s a dutch pos system with just a few customers.
I am used to program with PHP, MySQL, HTML etc.

What is the best way to do this? Live integration or sync every X minutes.

Should I create a script to create a XML file from my existing database, is there an automatic way to import files? Or should I create a standalone script to sync the databases, without using magento?

Hi there,

I wonder if your problem was solved already, because i have the same problem. I have to connect my magento database to other host.

Should you have any ideas or solution to this issue would be so much appreciated by replying here.

Thanks.
