    I am in the process of moving a blog to a new WordPress MU server. PRetty much all done except for the user accounts. I did a dump of wp_users on the old blog and re-created corresponding rows in the NEW wp_users table in MySQL. But they don't show up in wp-admin. What gives?

    If I need to re-create the users from within the WordPress MY interface, the users get sent a welcome e-mail, etc. I don't want that! I want this transition to be as transparent as possible.

    Is there any way to re-create the users from the old blog (about 100 of them) in the new instance of WordPress MU?

    Cheers,

    Yup, check usermeta stuff in DB.

    Ok. I'll take a look at that table. Will any of that SQL code need to be tweaked since its going into a MU database?

    You may have to tweak the first couple of user IDs, since the main one (1) will already exist in the MU part.

    You may also have to assign them to a particular blog.
