    Hi -

    I changed hosts today.
    How do I import or move posts and categories from one WordPress installation to another?

    thanks in advance

    There are some guides there which might help, starting with http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/move2/

    Do keep backups of everything and do keep asking if you are unsure :)

    devils advocate,

    Did you have any luck with this?

    I want to do something similar but don't see an option on the WordPress admin-panel IMPORT tab for importing from another WordPress blog.

    If I could do this, it would save me a ton of, seemingly, unnecessary work.

    I'll try to check out the helpful links posted by podz but would appreciate a followup post if you figured some things out.

    One thing I'm concerned about is losing comments, which seems to have been a problem with some others who have used WordPress's import function....

    I did the database export and re-import a while ago for about four blogs - this worked perfectly.

    Takes a little more knowledge than just importing via the web - but //everything// comes across cleanly.

    I installed the plugin for importing my blogs from external servers (blogger, wordpress.com, etc) to my own server with wordpress but it's not working. It says that the CURL isn't installed. I spoke to my web admin guy who installed Fantastico so I could install WordPress for me and he reinstalled CURL as it should have been there - he sent me the logs showing it was installed. But still I can't get that plug in to work and it still says the same thing. So, where to next?

    It's a shame that a plugin allowing a user to import, via the web, past posts from Blogger and WordPress.com accounts exists, but there can't be a similarly simple way to move posts from one personal wordpress blog to another.

    Bless you, HandySolo. Now if only I had a time machine....

    Apparently my search-fu is VERY weak.

    At least now I'll know what to do if it comes up again for me or any of my friends.

    Thank you.
