I have a WordPress multisite installation, and I need to remove the multisite, and keeps just the site ID 5 (domain.com/br) in the main address (domain.com).
So I follow this tutorial to remove WordPress multisite installation: http://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/uninstall-multisite/. After that I dropped
term_taxonomy etc, and changed the tables
wp_. My site became extremely slow to open pages, his aesthetic was greatly affected, images did not load, so I was informed about the serialized data in the database, and that I should not change the database manually.
I do not intend to migrate the multisite to NGINX, so I think I have 2 options:
Do a stand alone installation (domain.com/br in domain.com, and after redirect .com to .com/br), and stay with a single website. change the database tables from site ID 5 to the main site tables database (I mean keeps just one database working perfectly), and migrate a single website.
Which do you recommend, and can you provide references on how to do this?
p.s.: I'm disregarding the option of buying a plugin to do this, and learning to do at hand.
