Support » Installing WordPress » Databases: Exporting and then importing to a new account

  • Hello,

    I own a few sites, most of which are entirely built using wordpress. Some I have an html landing page and stuff. So I have some knowledge, just enough to get me into trouble!

    I have decided to create a new account and move one of the sites from the old account to a new one. I was able to export the associated database to my own computer’s hard drive, and then import and the import said it was successful. But when I go to the site, something didn’t work. The pages I built and the posts I had written did not upload. When I checked the SQL database, the content is there, but it’s not showing up.

    Does anyone know of something I could be doing wrong? Or a setting maybe that I missed?

  • Please don’t think I’m “bumping”. I wanted to edit above post but cannot find edit button.

    I wanted to add that I went to my sql database that I uploaded and looked into the matter. The posts did upload, I can read them inside the database, but they are not showing on the website here: is where the pages and posts should show, but as you can see it still shows the original install.

    Should I delete everything and re-load? I’m thinking maybe the problem is that I installed a new version of wordpress before I uploaded.

    I’m going to try that now and I’ll come back to report if it worked. Can someone tell me how to edit my post so I don’t unintentionally bump?

    Hmm. THIS post allows me to edit but first does not.

    thank you esmi, I’m going to retrace my steps and try it this way. I’ll report back when I know more. Maybe this will help someone in the future.
