What I would like. A server generates row entries every now and then. I want this entry to be sent to my WordPress site and inserted as a row in a table.

How would I accomplish this as simply and securely as possible.

My knowledge of WordPress development is in its infancy stage.

WordPress has an API available to allow external scripts to get data from your website and to add (POST) data to your website. You can create a custom API endpoint where you receive the data from the other server and in a simple function create a new record in the WordPress database:

  1. Create a function in your functions.php to create a new record in the tablet.
  2. Add the new API endpoint in your functions.php

I know this is a very summarized explanation, but I hope this gets you in the right direction?
