Import Entire Site - Admin details lost (5 posts)

    Hi,

    The owners of our community wordpress site has gone awol and basically to cut a long story short we don't have access to the admin password, hosting account or any other access.

    I have a new URL on a new hosting provider and I basically want to import as much of the entire site, posts, pages categories into the new site and start again - basically just access all the content on the existing live site.

    I have tried importing from rss feed but this only imports a few posts but there are hundreds.

    Is there a way to access all the posts pages on the current live site as an XML or other format and just import all the content into the new site without having to do a labrorios copy / paste please?,

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Sorry but none of these methods will work since we have no:

    access to host
    ftp access
    admin access
    access to the admin email

    Basically I just need a way of cloning / copying the site if such a thing exists

    I'm looking at the winhttrack solutions but this still means a messy page by page import.

    Any other suggestions gladly received

    Thanks

    How does one person dead? mean you lost all legal access to your site, YOUR host?

    No access to host - any ideas on post import other than copy / paste?
