[resolved] What if the site blows up? (6 posts)

    I am going to have to change my primary domain. Using these direction it says to:

    1. Upload the updated wp-config.php file via FTP if you haven’t done so already.
    2. Dump/drop all tables in your database.
    3. Restore your database by importing the edited SQL file

    What does number #2 step mean?
    Also, what if when I implement these steps and the site does not work anymore? Can I upload the old files and bring my old multisite back to life?
    I'm scared!

  2. that's why it says "make a backup" first.

    #2 mean delete the old db. Yes, delete. That's why you BACK UP.

    because if it;s messed up you can restore the old one.

  3. Being a chicken-shit, I tend to make a second DB and just move from DB1 to DB2 in my config file.

  4. I've done that too. AND backed up as well. :D

    Can never have too many backups.
