Moving WordPress: Moving a Site Out of a Multisite Network


Sometimes a site has been created in a WordPress Multisite network but needs to be moved to its own single site installation. There are a few scenarios where this might happen including:

The site has grown too large to be contained in the network.
The site needs its own IP address.
The site owner is moving providers or taking over complete management of the site themselves.

In some instances you might find that you can move the site out of Multisite by using a plugin or a combination of plugins, but if this doesn’t work you’ll need to move the relevant database tables. Moving a site out of a Multisite Network in this way is a tricky process as it involves isolating the database tables in the Multisite database that relate to that specific site. However it’s not impossible.
