    I have a blog page with WordPress.com and just found out I have no access to FTP login details... so can i transfer over to WordPress.org and keep everything the same?

    You can move your content to a new self-hosted site - this document explains more:

    Thanks looks like a good option. I do currently have a WordPress.org account for one of my other sites...can i add another website to this account?

    You'll have to ask the hosting provider - some do let you do that. Who is it?

    Sorry I didn't explain.
    I already have two websites, separate Domain names and separate Hosting providers. One site is on WordPress.com and the other WordPress.org. Do i need to download WordPress.org again to add the WordPress.com blog/site or can i add it onto my other WordPress.org site?

    That's what I thought you meant - but are you wanting to still have separate sites - just both self-hosted? If so, it depends on your hosting provider - whether you can add another domain name to the same account. If they let you do that, and you want separate sites, you'd likely put one or both in their own sub-directory see:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory

    In that case, yes, it's a totally separate install of WordPress.

    There is another way to run multiple WordPress sites - but it's a bit complicated - especially if you are trying to move existing sites to it - see : http://codex.wordpress.org/Create_A_Network (this creates your own network - which is what WordPress.COM is).

    Or am I still missing what you're asking :) ?

    Ok. I think i have now confused myself...

    What i'm going to do is start a new WordPress.org site and import my current WordPress.com site... all this because i don't have CPanel or FTP access.

    Now this brings another problem - Installing WordPress.org

    1. Download - Tick
    2. Installation - Where is the wp install file?
