    Thanks for this post…very clear and easy to follow. Btw WP Migrate Pro has a nifty search and replace feature which automatically pre-populates the source and destination fields with the appropriate URLs. I’ve used it for moving multisite and it works great!

    You are my hero! I was trying to figure this out on my own first and let’s just say it didn’t work. Missed the wp_blogs table and got caught in a redirect loop.

    Worked great. Thanks! A suggestion for making it even more simple: update the .sql file before importing it, in a text editor and replace the old url’s with the new one simple with find/replace. Worked like a charm for me

    THANKS ALOT, I’m almost there :-), I hope. It seems I only have one problem left – “My sites” won’t show. It seems that there is a “/” missing in the url when try reaching it. I get something like this : http://mysite.comwp-admin/network/ – se now “/” between com and wp-admin/network. Any HELP outthere.

    Thanks for the tip about wp-config.php I forgot to change value for:

    “define(‘DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE’, ‘oldsite.com’);”

    …to “newsite” and I was going crazy with the error. I searched all over about how to migrate a multi-site and there quite little documentation. The few that mention about the config file do not talk about it very much.

    So thank you for your 2 cents 😉

      yo’re right…same thing here. all correct but the config part. I have migrate my database, and everithing else like a normal wp istalation using the interconectit tool but I did not remember about changing the domain current site.

      Here I found litte more details about how to get this done: http://tutorialspage.com/migrating-multisite-wp-dont-forget-to-edit-wp-config-php/

      Actually in WordPress codex there is a small mention about chenging this…but I think nobody see it..

    You’re actually right but what I notice is that Duplicator Cloner Migrator is the easiest plugin. follow the link below and it’s for free.

    > and there are no plugins to help you out.

    Actually, there are several backup/migration plugins that support multisite > multisite, multisite > singlesite, singlesite > multisite
