    I have a customised site which I wrote at zxq.net the actual address is smsl.zxq.net I have changed to go daddy as a host and need to move all the content. I have installed wordpress and thought I could just use the export tool and import it to the new site. savingmoneysavinglives.org
    This hasn't worked and I am stuck with the 2011 theme with bits of the new site content on there.
    I am relatively new to wordpress and would really appreciate if someone could give me some simple instructions of how to make the move

    Go to your control panel > phpmyadmin
    dump your database (for your previous wordpress installation) use a DB search and replace script to replace your old domain to your new on the DB sql file.

    and Import that your new installation

    Be careful not to use a normal search and replace because it will break all the serialized strings containing the domain.
