    hi,
    My old free webserver has deleted my account but fortunately I have site backup and database backup. Can anyone guide me how to recover the same site on new server (Paid) with new domain and every thing new. Please guide me.

    thanks for reply,
    I have read that post but everywhere in this post it is doing moving relative to old server, eg. first update few fields in old site then copy files and upload on new server etc. How can I update old wordpress site if I don't have it?

    The answer is on that Codex page. Please read carefully.

    1. Copy your files to the new server
    2. Use PhpMyAdmin, or other database interface software provided by your host, to import your database-- the one saved from the old site.
    3. Go to the part of the page linked to above and piece things back together.

    You won't get to do it the easy way but it shouldn't be too hard if you read carefully and follow instructions.
