    Hi there,
    My hosting was cancelled, because I forgot to pay for it, I have MySQL backup files, they were sent to my email automatically every week. Are these files any good to restore my blog if so how can I do it? Godaddy are offering to restore it for $150, don't want to pay that. Thank you very much for any answer!

  2. Yes but you also need a backup of all your files (because therein lived your images etc).

    Easiest solution: pay the hosting company and your existing site will magically reappear.

    Second best: use the backup DB and upload it to your new rig.

    Third best: use the WordPress export file (the WXR file you get via Tools > Export)

    Fourth best: pay someone, preferably in advance, to do the job for you.
