How to merge two WordPress Databases?

So, a while ago I faced a issue that caused the site to be completely down to the point where I had to pretty much start all over again. However, before changing hosts and starting fresh, I saved the whole database the site used which has content as far back as 2013.


I've been trying to figure out if there is any way to merge this database with the current one I'm using in order to recover all the content that's stored there but haven't been able to do so. By any chance, has anybody ever done something like this or has an idea about how to accomplish this?

Hello and great question. I've never done this but there's a Stack Overflow thread on merging MySQL databases. I recommend asking in some WordPress IRC channels for other options.
