Clone site to multisite network (3 posts)

    Hi,

    Because my webhosting service doesn't allow WordPress wildcards, I had to make subdomain like this:
    - make a map in the ftp root
    - copy wordpress files to that map
    - edit wp-config
    - install wordpress
    But now, I'll change to another host very soon (a host which does allow WordPress Wildcards). So I'll setup a multisite network.
    But my question is, how can I make a copy of my subdomains and import them to my multisite.
    I can't just move the files via FTP because when you make a site via multisite, a FTP folder isn't created.

    Many thanks in advance!

    I'm not sure if this is what you need but you should take a look here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL or here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress

    There is also a useful script to search and replace things on your website here: http://interconnectit.com/products/search-and-replace-for-wordpress-databases/

  3. But my question is, how can I make a copy of my subdomains and import them to my multisite.

    You don't.

    You'll have to set up wildcard subdomains on the new host, though. And once you do, WordPress will know what to do.

    (If you're not changing the actual URLs, just moving the whole WP install, you won't need to change the DB. If you are changing the URLs, use the script castordor linked to. It is teh awesome.)
