    Im a longtime WordPress fan and have hosted my blog through a hosting company in Seattle for 3 years now. This past week Ive grown tired of thier ignorance and have gone to a new host. What Im trying to do is import my blog from my old site and domain to my new site and new domain. I tried upload my saved SQL database and I even tried FTPing every file (which ended up going back to my old site)...

    so my question is...how can I take my wordpress from my old site and put it in my new site? Thats posts and comments. Im not really concenred about the pictures, Ill put them in myself if I have to

    thanks!

    Uploading your local copy of your blogs MySQL to your new hosts SQL server, and updating your wp-config.php file, should have put you on the road.

    Don't forget that unless you've transferred your domain as well, you'll have to change your blogs address and wordpress address in your database. I think this is where your problem lies.

    Read this tutorial, it might help:
