[resolved] Transfer from one site to another? (3 posts)

    I recently got myself a new domain, and I would like to transfer over my wordpress journal to the new site.

    My old site, currently runs version 1.5 and my new domain I just got installed the current version 2.0.

    Would it be as simple as just importing the databases for the comments and entries, or would there be more to it?

    Your should backup/export the whole database.
    Then replace the new db with the old one (hope you don't have posts in the new one!) and - IMPORTANT - run the upgrade.php before you do anything else: meaning no opening, no admin, nothing before the upgrade.

    Or, alternatively, you can easily export/import DBs in between same versions.
