My wife has multiple blogs installed under a single wordpress hood, with the multisite feature, I installed it for her with the release of wordpress 3.2.1, under the root/subfolder-blog format.
We’re about to move her multisite blogs to another web host (a big move, from shared to dedi, I’m already hosting there several websites), and since I’m a heavily paranoid person, in addition to backing up the files and the whole database containing all the multi-blogs, I would really like to be able to backup each blog separately, as if it were a single blog.
This way, if there are problems with the new web host (multi can be tricky with its server configuration as soon as we deal with Apache, seriously, and the results from my various test installations have been random, sometimes it worked, sometimes not), I can resort to separate installations for a little while.
You know the proverb about having all the eggs inside the same basket.
So, here’s my question, please,
– is it possible to backup each of the multi-blogs into a separate database,
– and is it possible to re-integrate a separate blog’s database into an existing multisite blog installation ?
(and yes, I already searched, but found no valid solution, at best recommendations for export, with phpmyadmin, to rename wp_xxx_tables to just wp_ after saving to a new DB, blame my poor google-fu)
Thank you VERY MUCH if you can tell me, this would be extremely useful to know !
(PS : I apologize, I had first posted my question in the wrong forum, please, could a moderator delete the wrong post ?)
