    Hi redlandgames,

    WordPress database is having certain structure... So I think you have to manually change the table structures to import it to the wordpress DB.

    You can try to export from WP to csv. View structure of csv file and make a similar one with data from your non Wordpress site, then import it in WP.

    If it is a database backup of a previous wordpress installation, then it will work fine, otherwise you will have to make certain changes.
