    I am having to close my blog down. I am not sure I want to start another, if I do, it wont be by transferring the information from this blog to the new one.

    What I need to know is, I want to copy the information to my hard drive, to be able to pull it up on my pc, and refer to it, if necessary, I have taken a mysql dump and copied the files to the hd, but how can I look at the pages, on the hd?

    If you want to set up a WordPress site on your own computer, you would need to install mysql and a web server to use with it. There are single install packages you can run to set these things up, such as WAMP Server.

    oh wow, thank you for such quick replies.

    I wasnt wanting to set up wp on my pc, all I want is to be able to access the pages, so I can view the information, I dont need to look at the posts. Is there a folder in wp that has that information in html format?

    No, all the page content is in the database.

    You could probably export the database as a text file, but it'd be a pain to read.

  6. If you don't have a lot of pages, you can just visit each one and save as HTML.

    This claims it can convert a WordPress exported XML file into html: http://code.activestate.com/recipes/551792/
