    Recently my host went warned me that they would be going down (it was a free host) and that everything I had would be lost. I managed to keep all the files that I had. I am now trying to re-host everything, but I have to use a different domain. So I bought one. I was wondering how to get all of my posts back, and have wordpress set up on my new domain.

    I guess the number one most interesting question would be: Did you get a database backup?

    The files you have are what you need to get your wordpress to look and operate the way you expect. That's half the battle to restoring your blog. That's the good news.

    Unfortunately, you need the contents of the mysql database, which is not contained in the files themselves. Do you have a backup of the database?
