    Hi,
    How should I do to migrate my content on WordPress < 2.5 to the new version of WordPress (3.3.1).
    Thanks

  2. Can you upgrade to a more current version of WordPress?

    It's a lot of work but if you can get up to date then exporting and importing the data with WXR is pretty trivial.

    If you perform a complete file and database backup, and you can restore that backup then disable all of your plugins, switch to the default theme and manually upgrade.

    Do not attempt this unless you really know and have confirmed that your backups are complete and good, and really do disable all of your plugins and revert to the default theme first.
