[Resolved] Database issues

  • We are moving our WordPress server from a Suse box with MU 2.8.9 to a Server 08R2 using 3.0.4. I have the new system up and running however I am having issues exporting and importing the Database. My next plan of attack is to make a clone of the old server upgrade it to 3.0.4 and try the export/import then but do to it being live I’m stuck for another 3 weeks till I can do that. If anyone has an idea of how to get this moved without building a clone and such please let me know. Also has anyone had any luck with 3.0.4 using LDAP with AD, that’s my other issue at this point.

    Thanks in advance

    however I am having issues exporting and importing the Database.

    What kind of issues?

    I login in to the live site as Admin and do an export. I then transfer the file to the new server and have it do a import and get the following message.

    The uploaded file could not be moved to C:\inetpub\wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2011/01.

    I have even copied the xml file to the location stated above and tried it from there and again the same error. I read in a post to convert the xml file using google blogs to wordpress and that just gave me errors, sorry I did not keep those but since i ran it with the same result several times I sure I could get them again if needed.

    That’s a folder permissions error. Quite common and not multisite specific.

    It was in fact, thank you very much. Had no idea that I needed to give IIS_USR full rights to get this to work. However now that I have that moving I have noticed a slight issue exporting the users from the old server. When I go into export I select all authors however it only pulls out 2 users from the 50+ that have access and posts. I have checked the account types and the 2 that it pulls are the same as several other users though it only pulls them and if I use the pull down it shows these 2 users, admin and all authors. Any ideas as to why it will not pick up all the db?
