    Greetings Folk

    Since my site is in 2 languages, I have previously seted up 2 install of 2.9.2 as sub domaine .. http://www.mysite.com/en/ and http://www.mysite/fr/ which runs independanly from each other

    with the relase of WP3.0, it seems to me that is a perfect case study for a network like organisation?

    how would you do to "merge" my 2 databases in one so that I can keep all my content from the 2 sites?

    Thank you in advance

    I did so and it works (not for registred users)
    Update the 2 wp to 3.0
    Choose the database who have to supoort the multi site. Install the multi site and create the second blog with the super-admin, so you get the prefix wp_ for the first blog (en) and wp_2 for the second (fr).
    Rename all tables from the second blog (fr) in wp_2 on the old database, backup the base and import all on the first database.
    (some plugins running under 2.9.2 can rename the tables for you. In this case you have to rename the tables before update the database to wp 3,0)

    I forgot : the prefix wp_ is just as example, it's the default prefix from wp and not really safe.
