Is there a way I could import posts from Hotaru to Drupal?
I know this probably isn't a well received topic but I need help.
Thanks in advance!

Sorry, I really don't know,
I think you have to ask to Drupal Community, here we can help if you have an Hotaru installation.

If you set up your database table structures to exactly match those of Hotaru you would be able to perform an export/import of the data - but the tables have to match exactly. If they do not, then you have to write a custom program that will read the Hotaru data and insert the data into the corresponding tables that you set up on Drupal. In other words, it is always possible to read one SQL database and insert the data into another SQL database -the question is how easy or difficult it will be to write the programs if there are no existing tools. I am not familiar with MySQL tools, but there may be tools that will automatically map one set of tables to another though I doubt such tools will be available for free.
