I want to fetch some post from another wordpress site which is hosted in the same server. How can I fetch those post?

Is multiple database connection is possible in wordpress?


It is possible but you must manually create a new instance of the wpdb class with right settings for your other database.

Quote from the wpdb Codex page:

The $wpdb object can talk to any number of tables, but only one database: the WordPress database. In the rare case you need to connect to another database, you will have to instantiate your own object from the wpdb class with the appropriate connection details. For extremely complicated setups with many databases, consider using hyperdb instead.

You can use HyperDB: https://wordpress.org/plugins/hyperdb/ It allows multiple databases, also read/write replicas or master / slave.
