I am planning on porting a web site from hand-coded using SQL Server to a WP Site

I am the webmaster of araPreferred.com and I want to migrate it from .Net 2.x to WP. I have some 30,000 names to import, not really a big deal ... however ... I need to know what order I do this. I am assuming create the WP site and here comes the question: Import the users and then install Membership OR install Membership and then import the users? Thank you for any help.

    Hi there @LyndaEPostal,

    You are most welcome in the WPMU Dev community and thank you for your question.

    The Membership doesn't handle users separately as it treats WordPress users as Members so the order doesn't matter but if you want to configure users with some default data like access levels, subscriptions, User is Active or not etc. then i want to suggest you to install Membership plugin before starting importing the users so that the Membership tables will be created in Database and you can populate it with default initial data.
