Simulated child site to true child site conversion strategy (2 posts)

    I have just successfully converted a 2.92 blog to a 3.0 multi-site blog. (Thanks for your help.)

    I have four other sites that are organized into physical directories. They are 2.92 and 2.93 sites.

    e.g

    http://www.MonBed.com currently redirects to http://www.max-opp.com/monbed

    http://www.alanjordan.com currently redirects to http://www.max-opp.com/alanjordanblog

    Is the best procedure for making them 3.0 child sites to create new child sites and then to import the data?

    If I do that, do I need a virtual directory name that is different from the physical directory name?

    Also, if I do this, will it break existing permalinks? For example, what will happen when someone goes to http://max-opp.com/monbedblog/why-buy/parenting-tips-teaching-your-toddler-to-read

    Thanks.

  2. Is the best procedure for making them 3.0 child sites to create new child sites and then to import the data?

    Yes.

    Not sure what you mean here. New sites in the network don't make directories on the server. they live only in the db.

    Also, if I do this, will it break existing permalinks?

    Nope. Set it up the same and you'll be good.
