I would like to migrate users from one wordpress site to another along with their paasswords, there are 15000 users in total . what would be the best way to do this . is a migration of the database tables wp_users and wp_user_meta recommended ?


  • Sounds like importing tables would be easier. Do your new site already have users (apart from admin users)?

I imported the 2 tables in the target database and faced permission issue while logging in to the target site , then I followed this site http://beconfused.com/2007/how-to-solve-you-do-not-have-sufficient-permissions-to-access-this-page-in-wordpress/ and it fixed the issue.
