Can I point New WP Install to Old Database?
I am wondering if it is possible and how difficult it would be to use an old database with a new install.
Basically, I botched my upgrade. The site is hosted by Blue Host and i thought I could use the Word Press service to install the newest version of the word press files, and if otherwise followed the extended upgrade docs from Word Press, that I would be golden. Not so.
Basically, what it looks like happened is that I ended up with a clean install and a new database. I was able to retain our theme, our widgets, and some of the customization we did to it, but it is referring to the new and blank database containing no posts.
Is this as simple as changing all references to the new database in the wp-config file to refer to the old database, or do I have to try a rollback?
