    Migrating a stand-alone site into a network – I guess I should of looked this up before buying the Migration Add-On.

    I get the following error:

    Errors:
    Error: You are running on WordPress multisite – but your backup is not of a multisite site.

    So this is not supported yet? (as usual this is something that needed to be done ASAP)

    I found another way to migrate their site to a multi site install, and removed the UpdraftPlus purchases from their install.

    Since I could not use the UpdraftPlus add-on with their site, is it possible to set the Migration add-on in my account back to inactive so I can use it elsewhere.

    Hi Wayne,

    The Migrator add-on is unlimited; it can be installed again already.

    We did write some code a year ago that can import a single site into a multisite – but the guy who was funding it then vanished and we never finished testing it. I’m not sure how well it works now when activated. If you send me a single site you want to test, then I can do so (no promises or timescales though!).

    Thank you for responding, however at this time I have no more sites that need migrating. If someday I do have a single site back-up that you can play with, I will keep that in mind or hopefully somebody else can send you one to test. When the single to multi-site migration feature does become available please let me know.

    Can you explain how you did it? I’m up the same river.

    Hi Brien,

    We have some code in UpdraftPlus for importing a single site into a multisite network. It is not well-tested. If you can share with me a copy of the backup set for your network, and for the single site, then I can test it and see if it works, and tell you what to do. e.g. share a Dropbox or Google Drive link.

    Best wishes,
    David
