I have a domain with 18 WP Sites installed on it - all under different directories

domain.com/site1 domain.com/site2 domain.com/site3

I want to try and get all of the sites migrated to a single WP Multisite Blog

All the instructions I can find on this appear to be moving WP sites from different domains or sub domains

First step : Go through all of the 18 sites and make a back-up Second step : Convert the WP site within root to WP Multiuser Third step (For each of the 18 sites) : Set up new "site" with MU Admin Fourth Step (For each of the 18 sites) : Import data from back-up

The problem I have is how do I then check that everything has been migrated over correctly when the old site will no longer be visible ?

Also, will MU let me set up a site on the same path if a site already exists, for example if old site was on path domain.com/site1 - I would want new site within MU to be also "site1"

Hope this make sense

Any tips and advice would be appreciated

Thanks. David

Have you read this: Migrating Multiple Blogs into WordPress 3.0 Multisite

Have a look at this Youtube Video too. It's self explanatory.

  • Yes, seen both of those and they don't answer my question.
