    Hi Abid Khan,

    Do you need to import just the content (database) or do you have themes and plugins you wish to import as well?

    You can use the export & import tools inside of your WordPress dashboard (Tools > Export & Tools > Import) to export and import your WordPress content.

    If you have themes you wish to bring over as well, you should be able to copy your wp-content folder from your first site and upload that to your second site (overwriting the 2nd site's wp-content folder). You can then activate your desired theme from your WordPress dashboard.

    These two articles from the Codex provide more insight as well:

    Hope this helps!
