Moving multiple wordpress sites to a new server with a single database (3 posts)

    Folks,

    I've been doing a bit of Googling, and I can't seem to find an answer to this. I've just built myself a shiny, new Ubuntu 12.04 install. Now, back in the day when I installed my WordPress sites (4 of them), I wasn't exactly saavy.

    What I'd like to do now is migrate them to the new server, and have them all on the same database (just to simplify things). I realise I have to rename my tables from wp-*** to somethingelse-***, but I'm just struggling with the logic of migrating.

    Could any of you lovely people even give me some high level direction?

    Thanks in advance!

    How would that simplify things?

    You could use multisite and migrate your four sites to it: http://codex.wordpress.org/Migrating_Multiple_Blogs_into_WordPress_3.0_Multisite

    Ah yes!!! Maybe I wasn't asking the right question, but this is the answer I was looking for! I didn't know multisite existed!!

    It sounds like the way forward! Thanks keesiemeijer!!
