    Greetings,

    Well its kind of a really stupid mistake i made but i need help if there is any other way.

    I had my personal site hosted and the hosting company closed down without notice. Thus I had managed to copy all the files from there to my computer.

    Now I got Godaddy hosting and want the same post and themes back on it.

    I read that I had to export all that before so I can import in this new hosting .

    Is there a way I can do with just all files I copied from the old hosting and recover my posts and all.

    Desperate :(

    Thanks

    No, your posts are in the database.

    Unless one of the files you copied is a .sql backup file of your database, you can't recover your posts.

    Ask your hosts where the database backup file is. It's also possible it's a compressed .gz file

    Uncompress it with a program like 7zip.

    What's in the kudrati.net.db file? Try opening it in a text editor and see if they are SQL statements.

    Look around and see if you can find a file with SQL statements. Without that there's no way to get your content back.

    Import it into your new host's database. They should provide a web based tool like phpmyadmin which will make it quite easy to do. If not, ask them for instructions.

    You should review the instructions at http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress

    Really hard time for you , bro. You can do nothing without the sql database.
