    HI a colleague created a site on wordpress.org and now wants it moved to a hosted domain. I have a fresh wordpress install on the hosted domain. how can I download all the file plugins and db to be uploaded to the new domain. Is there a plugin that will do this?

    Hello tiki16. You'll find instructions for moving from WordPress.org here...

    1. Register a WordPress.com account and blog at http://wordpress.com/signup/
    2. In the old blog, go to Tools → Export and download the XML (WXR) file to your computer.
    3. In the new blog (on WordPress.com), go to Tools → Import → WordPress and upload the file you downloaded in step 2. After you upload the file, you can choose the option to Download & import file attachments if you want to move your media files.

    Let me know if you have any questions. Cheers!
