[resolved] Changing WPMU URL from Dev to live server (3 posts)

    Hi, This is the first time building a multi user site. I have a wpmu site being developed on a test server. we are transferring it to a live server and the domain name needs to be changed, as the test server had another URL. Typically i'm used to going into the database and running the following migration query, for a regular wordpress site.

    UPDATE wp_posts SET guid = REPLACE ( guid,'OLD URL/',
    'NEW URL/');      
    
    UPDATE wp_posts SET post_content = REPLACE ( post_content,'OLD URL/',
    'NEW URL/');

    I understand any new blog that is created would then go to wp_2_posts, but im not quit familiar with the DB structure of multi user, as I am with a generic wordpress site.

    Can anyone help with suggesting any additional querys to run for WPMU to successfully transfer and change the domain name? Or just simply let me know what else would need to be changed.

    Thanks in advance.

    The script linked to from that codex doc will be a lot better for you :)
