[resolved] Hosting Migration Question (5 posts)

    Right now I have wordpress installed on a friend's server, who also provides my hosting. However, that install has some issues, such as that the flash uploader doesn't work, the plugin/theme installer doesn't work, etc. I am moving to a new host this weekend (bluehost) and I was wondering if it is possible to use a new install (the auto-install) while still keeping my existing database? And if that is possible, would my old problems end up still occurring on the new host as well?

    I have looked at the Moving WordPress FAQ, but I can't find anything about this sort of thing on there.

    Those instructions are for people who are changing the address of the blog. I am not changing the address or domain, merely the hosting.

    The 2nd instruction was fot both domain name change and hosting change which I threw in as a bonus in case you needed assistance there too. But the first link I gave has the steps you would need to migrate your blog.

    Server equivalent to Hosting, just in case you didn't understand that. I should have checked your profile earlier, you have lots of forum threads regarding this matter where many have tried to help you, but you just refuse to heed suggestions. Good luck.

    It's not that I refuse to heed the suggestions, it's that they don't seem to work!
