  • It looks like the issue is the Usermeta table. Is there a way to convert WPMU users to WP users?

    I’m assuming you did all this because you’re planning to go from MU to single site? If so … eh. I don’t think that’s the right way to go, or rather, I don’t know if you can go backwards. You’d be better off with a fresh install and an export/import.

    If you’re just trying to go WPMU 2.9.2 to MultiSite 3.0, then just upgrade per normal and it works fine.

    I guess I need to find out more about MultiSite 3.0. I just thought the codes were the same. 🙁

    🙂

    Mostly sorta. 🙂

    Are you trying to:
    a) Change a site from MU/Multisite to SingleSite
    b) Upgrade 2.9.2MU to 3.0 MultiSite

    I didn’t care, that’s likely the most correct answer, but I would eventually want a multisite, especially now since it’s all tied together…mostly sorta. 🙂

    As I look at MultiSite information, there doesn’t seem to be much there on how ‘upgrade per normal’. I did what I did above then uploaded a regular wp-config file. That hasn’t worked, and it seems to revolve mostly around the Usermeta.

    What should I do?

    Since you’re on MU now, I’d stay on that track, personally.

    Restore your backup.

    Upload the 3.0 files RIGHT over the MU ones. Don’t worry about the database.

    Follow the NORMAL upgrade path from there 🙂

    Enjoy.

    I should restore both, the WPMU files and the database? I altered the database thinking I might use more single site. Or should I just install the 3.0 files and link up to the database?

    I believe that your DB altering is what goobered the install.

    Restore the files and database and ‘start over.’

    Also, I don’t know if you CAN easily go from MU/MS to Single, so let’s just first see if we can get you back up and running 🙂

    Back up and running. All I did was restore the database. Let me ask before getting to what’s below, I didn’t add the multiuser line as it states in the WP 3.0 documentation. I suppose I’m good to go on that note. It appears to be working. It says Super Admin.

    Secondary, likely more important is I’m getting this notice now:

    The wp-content/blogs.php file is deprecated. Please remove it and update your server rewrite rules to use wp-includes/ms-files.php  instead.

    I know how to delete the file, just not sure where I need to rewrite what it says.

    Didn’t? Do, please 🙂 IIRC it also shows you the Tools -> Network admin section, which is where you’ll find your new .htaccess rules 😉

    I did, but I don’t get the Tools -> Network option.

    You added this: define('WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE', true);

    The .htaccess rules look something like this:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    
    # uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$2 [L]
    
    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?wp-admin$ $1wp-admin/ [R=301,L]
    
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    RewriteRule  ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-(content|admin|includes).*) $2 [L]
    RewriteRule  ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*\.php)$ $2 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    Assuming your install is in root.

    Yes, I added toward the end. Should I put that in my .htaccess file?

    I did put that in my .htaccess file and uploaded, but nothing has changed. Yes, this is all in my root.

    Yes, I added toward the end.

    Where? Seriously, it matters. I put mine JUST below the section for Authentication Unique Keys and Salts.
