Import WordPress 1.01 database to new Beta WordPre (5 posts)

    I haven't found anywhere how I can import WordPress to WordPress, although there is an import from MT, GreyMatter, B2 and probably a host of others.
    I have a brand new directory /wp instead of /blog and a brand new database in the new directory. How can I import the blogs from my other database into this one. Can anyone tell me?

    The easiest thing to do (if you have control of the database) would be to copy the old database to the new one and run the upgrade script at [path]/wp-admin/upgrade.php

    Uhoh, that's the easiest? I have no idea how to copy the database over although I have access to it, I just know nothing about php or mysql. Also the problem with that is that it might not work. The reason I have a new directory with the new WordPress version is that when I upgraded my previous version everything was screwed up so I started fresh.
    Is there a way to export the entries (kinda like what I did with MT and Grey Matter before) to some kind of text file and then import the blogs?

    http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/Backup.html has the directions for making a backup copy of the database and restoring it.
    What kind of screwed up were they for you? I ran the upgrade script and it worked perfectly.

    oh there were all kinds of mysql non-connections. I didn't expect a problem since I had cleanly installed the new version into a separate directory - so then I went and did the upgrade and poof, so I just went with the new one.
