    Hello,

    I was an idiot and though using the WP-Database plugin backed everything up...

    Since this is not the case, as a just in case I downloaded the entire directory and have that stored locally. Is it possible to export the data from this local copy?

    Thanks for any help...

    What host are you using?

    You can also export your WordPress files from your Dashboard. Go to Tools>Export to do so.

    If you downloaded your entire site directory, you can upload it to another server. Exporting your WordPress content requires you to go to your Dashboard>Tools>Export

    Will I just need to change the database and server information on the config file to make it work?

    You would have to keep the directory name the same for your new server.
