I'm copying all the content and users to a new domain (the current site will stay live, I'm not getting rid of that one) and I was thinking about just setting up a new wordpress install and using the wordpress tools > export > all content (from the old site) and tools > import (on the new site) to copy everything over.
That way I can install a fresh version of wordpress and just go through the normal setup process without having to worry about manually creating new databases and updating URLs and whatnot.
Will this not work for some reason? Will it populate the database with the old users (who also need to be copied over) and their passwords and user roles? Will it send them emails prompting them to create new accounts?
