How to move a muti-site to another hosting company
I am moving an add-on site(multisite wp 3.2.1) in a shared account to another hosting company, but a managed VPS with c-panel. Since it was an add-on site, I setup a new usename in the new server account. So the new database name is different from the old one.
I was told by the hosting tech support to download the core files and database, then uploaded to the new server c-panel, but the site shows nothing in the internet. Then I checked wordpress documentaion, I found the following link http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress#Moving_WordPress_Multisite
I have questions:
Why should I change WordPress address (URI) and Blog address (URI), I think since it is same website address, the url should stay same.
My site also uses permalink. I am very confused now. Should I change my site registration back to my old hosting company, then do everything as indicated in that link. Also the above link doesn’t give a clear step needed to do for multisite, so I am still afraid I will do something wrong.
The another thing is suPHP. The tech asked me if I wanted to enable suPHP. The tech said: since the php on my sever is running as DSO, the plugin installations will be under the apache user and I have to manually correct the permissions each time I am installing plugins. So I asked them to enable the suPHP. But then I read through internet and saw when suPHP was enabled, some of the cache function wouldn’t be able to function. Now I am wondered whether I should disable suPHP.
