[Resolved] Blog SQL Data transfer from old server – PROBLEMS!
I apologize if the answer to my question is already online but I doubt that it is…
I had been using Marathon Press for my hosting provider then decided to switch to a hosting provider which would allow me to do more with WordPress. Marathon does not allow subdomain access to your blog or to the ability to back up the data in the event of a transfer. Marathon is trying to tell me that because I am using version 2.3 and they had only been using 2.0.4 that I might not be able to do a database import of all my comments, posts, etc. In my research on WordPress, it was shown that doing a database dump is easy and only requires the user to make sure to include fields like comments, posts, etc. Images uploaded can be copied in the wp-content folder but the comments, posts, etc. have to be exported in the database. Since I am unable to access my subdomain and do the export myself, I have to rely on them. They are not being cooperative and are saying that they did the dump and that I am just not doing something right in the import. My new server uses phpMyAdmin and I already tested an export and import so I KNOW I am doing it right. Can ANYone help me please?? I’ve already had to file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau against Marathon Press because of their lack of response and as far as I’m concerned lack of know-how.
