Migrate Database (2 posts)

    I just switched hosting providers from MT to Dreamhost. Dreamhost has a 1 click install of WordPress 2.6.2. That's great but I am currently running 2.0.5 on my MT server. I would like to run the 1 click install for 2.6.2 and migrate my 2.0.5 db over to Dreamhost. Can anyone please tell me if this is possible and the steps necessary to pull it off?

    Many thanks,
    Matt

    I'd suggest doing an upgrade to 2.6.2 on your old host, then move that blog. See Upgrading WordPress and Moving WordPress.

    You could also consider installing the WordPress to WordPress import plugin on your old blog, then use the resulting export file and import into your new host (you would need WordPress installed at your new host--that could be a 1 click install).

    Before doing anything though, please backup both your WordPress database and your WordPress files!!!!
