Easy way to copy wp site from one host to another? (3 posts)

    If I have a blog hosted on wordpress.com, is there an easy way to copy it to a generic shared web host (the kind that uses cpanel and cost $7/month)? I googled this and found instructions on how to export XML, save and restore the database, replace URL strings in the database, etc. That isn't exactly easy. What about the image files used by the site, they would need to be copied separately, right?

    Is there a program or a script to do all this?

    importing by using wordpress exported xml, you can import any files (like images, pdf, etc) from your wp.com blog automatically (there is a checkbox to click). just wait the proccess done by your server.
