Move a live multisite install to a local one? (2 posts)

    This is half theoretical, but last night I tried to move a new client's multisite from a live domain to a local one. I got pretty far, but ran into an infinite loop with wp-signup.php and couldn't resolve it.

    I assume the issue has to do with subdomains and subdirectories, and that if a live site is set up with subdomains it can't be reverted back to a subdirectories site on the local version, but I was wondering if someone could confirm or deny that, and expand a bit on it.

    Cheers!

  2. You can switch between subs, but you have to edit the DB directly to 'fix' URLs.

    Go look at wp_sites (or possible wp_blogs... can't remember) and see how the URLs are saved.
