    Is it possible somehow to import an existing blog into MU?

    I have had a blog for some time, and now i would like it to be on my MU site.

    Can this be done?

    To my knowledge it can, though it will require some manual tweaking. It's essentially the same process as exporting / importing from from one WP blog to another. (see the WP documentation on this)

    Issues that I am aware of (with WPMU 1.2.1 from WP 2.1.1):

    • Users are not properly assigned ownership of posts. Any imported posts will be attributed to the currently logged in account.
    • I don't think user accounts are created, even though the import process prompts for this.
    • Uploads don't transition well, as file uploads are handled differently in WPMU over WP. They will need to be re-uploaded and re-linked to in posts / pages.
    • I'm guessing that absolute links referencing the blog will need to be re-written, though I do not know for sure.

    I just discovered these the other day, and have not entered or checked for tickets on them.
