[resolved] How does it work with a multisite install? (5 posts)

    In a WP multisite install, if I activate this plugin for a sub site and run it to make a change, will that change be exclusive to the sub site or will it impact all sites within the multisite install?

    yes, but only the search/replace about all !!! tables. use the first area on settings page to search/replace about all tables of your install.

    Frank, thanks for the response. I read that as, yes it will impact ALL sites within the multisite install (aka tables wp_5_options AND wp_6_options, etc).

    Which tells me it's NOT safe to use if I'm just trying to make changes to a single subsite of a multisite install.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Thanks!

    Yes, its right. The process works about all tables, not an single blog in the multisite install. If you will only search/replace in the tables of a blog in network, then dont use this plugin; maybe use sql in the plugin Adminer or phpmyadmin on your webspace.

    Thanks Frank, I appreciate it.

    And yes, I made my changes via phpMyAdmin.

    Still a great plugin though! Just didn't want to royally mess things up on my multisite install.
