Switched servers, lost content (3 posts)

    I have a feeling someone can point me to someone else's problem that I simply couldn't find through a search.

    We switched servers and I can't seem to figure out how to re-post my blog content. All the registered users are gone, too.

    We didn't specifically have a backup of the blog content, but I do have a database dump given to us by the old server's administrator. Is there a simple way to take this database dump and insert it somewhere in wordpress?

    If someone could tell me the easy way, I would really appreciate it. Otherwise, I'm extracting the blog entries from the database dump and reposting them. I have a sense that alot of details will get lost this way.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Michael.

    You might install wp-backup (a plugin) which allows to input mysql-dumps if it is placed in the backup-folder you need for it. Read the txt-file of the plugin for more information!
