I have 2 blog engine blog, in 2 different SqlServer databases.

Now I'm thinking to migrate them to a new hosting provider which makes me pay for each SqlServer database!

I just read that the next version of BlogEngine will support multiple DB and that it apparently already work in SVN.
I just happened to have downloaded the latest version (from the source code) of BE and it all works!

What should I do to merge them?  

- DB Wise: I guess just copying the data from each db in a new db might have some order and FK constraint problem

- configuration wise: how do I attribute 2 URL to the same blog code...

DB wise:  Use the Export Import Function of BE.   

 

Your Old blogs export the xml file in   Settings--> Import/Export

 

Then in new blog use the import function to import your old blogs.

This part I am not sure of have not tried the new BE yet.
