(or How to Migrate WordPress Multisite, Maybe)
These are my notes from the first working clone attempt, after less systematic failed/bailed attempts. I.e., this is not tested — be careful!
- Your child sites are in subfolders. You are not using subdomains.
- I happened to have multisite installed already (it was an old version of the site). The nice thing about setting up multisite first is that you’ll know for sure the .htaccess file works & MAMP is set up right. If you don’t have multisite installed, you can probably just copy the WP files over. (Please leave a comment if it works!)
- You are using free, non-pro MAMP (although, you can still use follow these steps, just tweak the first step).
- You are in a mental space where you can follow boring instructions. (It took longer to write this out than it did to copy the site.)
