Exporting Content From Sub Sites without Access (7 posts)

    In another thread I was explaining my MultiSite woes with cPanel. In order to resolve that problem I would have to park the domains on my main domain, and that would cause downtime, bad juju, etc.

    As of right now, I cannot access the sub blogs, and the blogs are down for clients. I need to get their blogs back up ASAP, and I'm resorting to setting up individual WordPress installs for them. I am not able to log into their dashboard to use the export tool, so I am wondering if there is another way to do it?

    Thank you ahead of time.

  2. You should be able to access them at the original, main site, URLs though... blog.mainsite.com as it were. You may have to turn off any domain mapping plugins you set up for them.

    I am able to access the main site, but the export tool only works for the main site. In order to export the other sites, I would have to click dashboard, log in, then export the content.

    I can't access their dashboard as blog.clientsite.tld no longer resolves due to cPanel's antics.

    Well. Yes :D That is how that works.

    I can't access their dashboard as blog.clientsite.tld no longer resolves due to cPanel's antics.

    How on earth did you add them if it worked before? I guess that's where you lost me. Shouldn't they still work as blog.MAINSITE.tld?

    They worked on a server that didn't have cPanel installed. Since we moved to cPanel they broke.

    Misread your post. Blog.mainsite.com works fine.

    It's all the blog.clientname.tld that doesn't.

    I'm not able to log into them to hit the export button.

  7. Okay... How did you 'change' WP to think that blog.mainsite.com is really blog.clientname.tld? If you did domain mapping, undo it. If you edited it directly in Network Admin -> Sites, undo that.

    Obviously the best thing is to get back to base zero.

    If that doesn't work, you'll have to dive into the DB and that'll be a hassle and a half.
