    hi, i recently changed my website hosting server and reinstalled wordpress on the new host. now, all my posts / pages / comments / users that are previously on my website are missing.

    is there anyway to retrieve them?

    Yes. Export the database from your previous host and import it into a new database on the new account. All your information is stored in the database; all of it! The only thing file based is the media you upload and the plugins you install; even those have database entries.

    When moving WordPress from one server to another or to a new domain the following article is always a good starting and reference point:
