Convert a Single user blog to a network blog and move the old blog posts
For the longest time My wife and I have used separate instances of wordpress for our blogs and while she has failed to update hers in some time I update mine regularly.
What I would like to do is convert MY instance into a Network enabled WP 3.0 blog. I want to then add two sites (using subfolders) one for myself and one for my wife.
The issue here is my current blogs are set up as blogs.andyjamison.com/andy
and so on
I have a fair amount of work in promoting my blog at the current location. I want to move my files to the root of blogs.andyjamison.com so all blogs it creates will be in the format i mentioned above. This is all easy to do so far the trick however is that I want to retain the structure blogs.andyjamison.com/andy for my blog so that feeds and aggregated services continue to point to my blog accurately. How can i covert to a network instance while moving the old single user blog to a site created with the now multi-site install?
From what I read doing nothing more then moving root files and converting to multi-site would then move my main blog (remember the one current here blogs.andyjamison.com/andy) to blogs.andyjamison.com which would cause alot of things to fail with regards to aggregation.
Due to my wife not updating her on a regular interval i can safely just create a new blog under this new Multi-site instance
