    Converting a site from U7 to U8 - How do I access a separate database?

    So the site used to access a separate non-umbraco database using var db = new Umbraco.Core.Database("ConnectionString");

    What is the equivalent in Umbraco 8?

    Hello AsheM

    Umbraco uses PetaPOCO as mini ORM, so you can do a query super easy like that:

    long count = ApplicationContext.Current.DatabaseContext.Database.ExecuteScalar<long>("SELECT Count(*) FROM articles");

    So the equivalent thing in U8 is

    var db = new NPoco.Database("connectionString");
