    Hi!
    Is there any problem to combine both WP single version (2.84) and a WPMU? I have already many WP single blogs and I am afraid that will be problem with both systems.
    If it is no problem, is it difficult to import the old WP single version of blogs to WPMU? Will the result be the WPMU version of the blogg will see exactly in same as in the single version?
    Thanks in advance!

    You can use the same database, just use different table prefixes. You can change these in the wp-config.php file. This usually isn't recommended because you may hit performance bottlenecks by using the same database for multiple sites.

    You can import everything into WPMU if you want to convert all of your single WP installs. The easiest way to do this is to use the built-in import/export functionality in WordPress. Note, however, that you won't retain plugin or site settings this way.

    From the the front end it looks the same. From the backend, you get a whole extra menu system.

    Go to the single WP blog. see the Export menu under tools? Do that. import it into MU.
