[closed] 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.

    yes, you will need to import the old database.

    And if that is possible, would my old problems end up still occurring on the new host as well?

    thats impossible to answer for sure, since no-one knows whats causing your current problems.
