Rut Row... did I lose my blog with a domain redirect? (3 posts)

    I've had my blog attached to my domain for a couple of years and it has run just fine, i.e. http://www.mydomain.com/FreeSamples. I had my webhosting redirected today to a new provider, and foolishly anticipated my blog coming along for the ride. I have forgotten whatever it was that I did to hang it off my domain, but I assumed the files remained on WordPress. Now I can't even seem to find a login that works on WordPress, and now I realize after reviewing a bunch of posts that my files are likely on the old server that I said farewell to today.

    Assuming I can retrieve a backup of my old site from the former server, can anyone tell me how to move the files from there to where it needs to be on the new server?

    And if there is a way to recover anything within WordPress, needless to say I'd be excited to hear about that, as well.

    Thanks for any help you can offer...

    Was your site hosted on WordPress.COM? If so, you'll need to ask on their forums: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/

    These forums are for self-hosted WP sites -- so if your site was hosted by another hosting service (not WordPress) then you are in the right place, and this should help you with moving your site:

    In the latter case, you might also need to contact your hosting company if you no longer have access to your site and database.

    Thanks for the respons... I'm still trying to get the prior host -- Yahoo -- to restore what was there, but they don't know whether they can. I will use link you included in the event they come through. Just a brain-burp on my end!

    Happy New Year!
