    It should, actually. I mean there is no reason for it not to, but haven’t tested it myself. You know, it would be really nice if you did and let us know 🙂

    Hi Mert,

    I tried moving my Multisite blog to a different domain name on the same server, but I’ve gotten a “500 Internal Server Error” and now cannot log back into my WP-Admin to reverse what I’ve done. I can still login to cPanel X to access the back-end of my site, but can’t get into WP-Admin because I’m redirecting from the old domain to the new (broken) one. 🙁

    See, I’m trying to give my blog both its own subdomain AND directory, like Multisite is installed at the root. What I did was to create a new subdomain of and then a folder /something/ underneath it. There’s nothing in the folders, though; I thought it would be like creating a “shortcut” in Windows, but no such luck.

    In WP Move I went to Migration Assistant under my main site’s Tools and just chose Change Domain Name. Should I have chosen a physical relocation instead? How can I reverse this process, and what should/can I do to fix the problem? I have full backups stored on my hard drive, how can I restore those so I can start again?

    You can see the 500 Server Error here:

    Going to just returns an empty directory. What can I do? 🙁

    EDIT: Sorry for the double post (ignore the links posted above, they’re not working, and the 500 error doesn’t appear right now), but I managed to restore a backup of my WP database and revert to a previous setup (from 08 Sept 2012).

    Under “Migrate,” in the WP Move settings, is it possible to move a single site under the Multisite to a sub-subfolder (/blogs/something) and THEN change my domain?

    All of this will be on the same server. In the Migrate box I only see moving to a different server.

    EDIT 2: Sorry for the triple post, but I gave up on Multisite and ended up moving my blog (as an individual site) to and WP Move was very effective in aiding the move. Initially I had a bit of a hiccup where going to that URL just displayed a directory listing, but that was my fault for forgetting to copy a file index.php to the new folder. Now going to the URL displays the front page of my blog. 🙂

    I don’t have any “real” data to support whether WP Move “works” with Multisite, as it was my own troubles with Multisite that were causing problems and not the WP Move Plugin. But I can safely say that it DID move my blog in the way I wanted it to once I got other things cleared out on my end. Great plugin, does exactly what it says on the tin! 🙂
