Easily Move a WordPress Install from Development to Production?

I have a dev, staging and production installation of WP MS. And I am trying to figure out what is the best way to move a site created in the dev environment to the staging environment.

Since MS uses one large database, I would be moving a group of tables vs an entire database. It worries me that I will corrupt the database.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I'm sorry. Not to be thick, but what does "MS" stand for in this context? And are you concerned about moving content (posts, Pages, tags, etc) or themes, plugins, etc.? – Chris_K Aug 27 '10 at 17:25
MS, in general, refers to MultiSite (formerly WordPress MU - Multi User). It's a new feature of WordPress 3.0 that allows for multiple sites to be run on top of one installation of the WordPress codebase. – EAMann Aug 27 '10 at 20:15

My recommendation would be to use WordPress' built-in import/export mechanism.

Yeah, the export / import mechanism would be the best way to go. I think the multisite database layout is incompatible with a single site configuration.
