Database posts puller (6 posts)

    I had around 15 posts on one of my old websites. I was hosting on a friends server and all of sudden he forgot to pay and right now cannot afford it. I was able to backup the MYSQL database and all the files but I was not able to export any of the posts. I was wondering if there was a tool or some way or some how I could pull the posts from the backup of MYSQL database and pull the posts off of it and put it on my new blog.

    Please I need help with this badly.

    The posts are in the mysql database (along with comments, settings, etc.). If your new blog does not have any posts yet and it's a WordPress blog, then you can probably use the mysql database on it. We'll need more information, though.

    Yeah I have found the posts inside of the mysql database problem is one part of the database is corrupted. I did not back up the database I had my friend do it and I tried importing the database to mysql via phpmyadmin and it saying that it is corrupted and no database targeted.

    Might try using a text editor and look for each post in that sql backup file and copy and paste into an actual post.
