[resolved] Problems moving from WordPress.com to WordPress.org (7 posts)

    Hi,

    At the start of the year I mapped my website (www.sianwilliams.net) to WordPress.com. In doing that, one of my blogs become and automatic redirect to sianwilliams.net. I have been designing my wesbite using the themes available in WordPress.com. I recently bought custom design for WordPress.com so that I could do a little more editing. I am not finding that I do not have that much freedom with the design as I cannot edit the full CSS. I have therefore made the move from WordPress.com to WordPress.org. In doing this I bought webhosting with Dreamhost. Everything installed ok but when I went to use the 'Wordpress one click' install on Dreamhost I received an error messaging saying my website is already on WordPress. I am unsure of what to do as my website is still showing on WordPress.com and I don't know how to make that stop so I can use WordPress.org on Dreamhost. Can anyone help me out? I am beginning to stress!

    Thanks,
    siandwilliams

    You need to use a temporary url to install WordPress on your own hosting if your domain name is still pointing to your wordpress.com site.

    You have WordPress installed on sianwilliams.net at DreamHost :) I can see it and if you visit your site, you get the setup screen.

    I moved my blog from WordPress.com to my new site on WordPress.org (exciting stuff)

    But after having done so - I have no access to my old website!
    and when I log onto wordpress.com the blog is not in my folder!
    The website still is on the web!

    I used
    Dashboard - blogs - transfer blog
    (and I also imported my xml after exporting it)

    Didn't think you then have no access to the entire website
    thought it only moved the blog - its lost all stats, contacts, and subscribed viewers

    Any ideas!!!

    @we-love-wood - please start a new thread - this one is outdated, already marked resolved and not the same issue as yours.

    You can do so here:
