Import One WordPress Database into Another? (2 posts)

    One of my WordPress databases became corrupted.

    When I couldn't fix it, I decided to create a new WordPress site and database.

    I'd like to import the backup database information from my original site, but I get error messages in PHP Myadmin--including that SQL is trying to load the original database name into the new database (which has its own name).

    Is it possible to import a WordPress backup from one site to a new site?

    Your best bet here is to get a new site up and running (including new db) and use the export/import ability of WP...or use a service such as Sucuri to clean old db file.
