    Hi folks,
    I've used WordPress mu to build a travel website: http://travellertribe.com
    I did not upgrade it to wprdpress 3.

    Now I 'm changing my server and, since I've to backup all my work, I would like to install WordPress 3.0.1 as multisite in the new one and put all the old content in it.

    My fears are the script doens't reconize the folders structure and the database.

    Once installed wp3 and setup as network in the new server,
    copyng the files from the old to the new server and export/inport database is enough?
    Does it better use the export/inport wordpress tools or backup my Mysql database?

    I really appreciate yor help...
    Have a nice day!

  2. It would be way, way easier to upgrade to 3.0 first, and then move it to another server.

    Doing it the way you;re suggesting above is asking for more problems to crop up.
