So I decided to switch my host. I backed up everything from my previous host (Powweb) onto my HD and am in the process of putting some stuff back up on my new host (Justhost) and I'm starting with my blog. The previous host has now expired and is no longer existing.
I uploaded my old wordpress blog files into my new server (with new /appropriate wp-config installed) and it's all up there except my posts.
I've gathered that I SHOULD have exported my posts into some file that I would be able to import them back into my new server but I have not done this and my old server is gone. I have backed up my entire blog directory folder which I figured that information would have been kept in.
Tell me I haven't lost all my posts forever...
