WordPress MU Migration (4 posts)

    I am running WordPress MU 1.3 successfully on my development environment (which includes both web server and database server). I now need to migrate it to my production environment. Below is what I've done:
    1. Syncronized files/folders from development web server to production.
    1. Export WordPress MU data/structure from development db server to production.

    3. Found and replaced host domain information which I found is hard-coded into the database.
    4. Imported the database with new host information on the production db server and created relevant user accounts.
    5. Asked server admin to enable .httacces changes in httpd.conf.
    5. The application should be ready to run. However I am getting a fatal error. See URL at:

    Anyone willing to point me in the right direction?

    Was your local install in the subdirectory /blog?

    If not, your wp-config.php and .htaccess will need modified as well.

    Also, you do know that if you're running in subdirectory mode, that your main blog posts will be filed under /blog/blog/, right?

    Yes, it's in my blog subdirectory and I've modifed wp-config.php file accordingly. I have not done the changes in .htaccess file. Is that what's causing the problem? Thanks, --Xiu

    may be easiest to delete the .htaccess and let your install recreate it.
