    hi,

    we are trying to move our bp to a subfolder.

    http://www.interconnectit.com/719/migrating-a-wordpresswpmubuddypress-website/

    this website is giving away great info but we are not moving to another domain, so we can’t use their tool to simply change the name of the domain. what we need to change is domain.com to domain.com/wpmu and in most of the tables of the database, domain is separately inserted from it’s trailing part /sub/sub/folder.

    Therefore, i’m not sure running a sql find/replace with domain.com to domain.com/bp will do any good..

    when i change the main blog’s url on wp_blogs on the database it looks like it’ll start working but then i get a blank page without any errors…

    is there something you want to share that could make our lives easier?

    You will need to change Mu’s .htaccess file to reflect your directory change. You more than likely still have this directive for the RewriteBase:

    RewriteBase /

    Change that to:

    RewriteBase /wpmu

    Thanks Jeff, I did that already. Also changed wp-config.php to reflect the new path and domain.

    It all comes down to the database, as far as I can see it. I don’t understand why wordpress needs to care about which domain it’s running on anyway but, that’s where we stand.

    I need to know what database fields/tables are dependent on the path of bp.

    Have you read this WP Codex article?

    Thanks Jeff, that was a great link.. I solved my problem, I wish I could say what I did for the ones that will have this problem in the future, but there is no single solution. Mine worked with changing wp_blogs main blog URL, re-activating the theme from admin, and rest of the links didn’t work so i did a .htaccess redirect for them…

    i wish wordpress would come up with a move script like they have install… it’s very tiresome to debug everything..

    cheers.
