    Are you trying to migrate just a few posts or all the posts?
    Is the new blog on the same server as the old one?

    If you just want to install/upgrade WordPress in a different directory, then its easy enough, without exporting/importing.
    Move all your wordpress files to the new directory.
    Log in as admin, go to the "Options" page, and change
    a)smilies_directory in General Blog Settings
    b)siteurl in Base Settings
    to reflect the change in your blog's base URI.
    mostly from Installation Faq Wiki

    When I tried 2fargon's method I couldn't login at the new url because it kept redirecting to my old url. Because I couldn't get into the admin pages I had to edit the mySQL dump to change the site url. After that it worked fine.
