Separating one of several sites from multisite install (and creating single)? (2 posts)

    I have 3 WordPress sites in a multisite install and I need to separate one and take it to another host. Is there documentation anywhere on how to go from a multisite install back to a single? I know I need to export all the files to use, but I'm not sure about the database and whether or not files/folders need to be renamed.

    Cant find any info on this. :(

  2. There are lots of posts on this. These are the top two hits from a fast Google

    The tl;dr of it is that unless you absolutely must keep all your users and passwords intact, it's easier to export the site and import it into a new one, just like you would for any WP site.
