    I am trying to import my old blog (http://www.delightfullydysfunctional.com/blog) into my new blog. I installed WP on the main page of http://www.delightfullydysfunctional.com and log-in. There are no posts except for the new, initial WP one.

    I try to log into my old blog (www.delightfullydysfunctional.com/blog) but once I login (same login info), it takes me to the new setup with just the single WP post. All of my old entries are visible on my old blog, but when I click the "read more" tab below each, it says "404 error, page cannot be found."

    I don't know what to do to rescue all of my old entries and put them on the new, mainpage.

    Please HELP!!! I think I may have screwed something up bigtime. Is my old blog lost forever, or is there something I can do to move it onto the new server/mainpage (www.delightfullydysfunctional.com)

    Any help you could give me would be HUGELY appreciated.

    See Moving WordPress « WordPress Codex. You don't have to reinstall WP, just move files. Everything is still in the database, unless you specifically deleted the database in your control panel.

    You will need to change URLs in the database, too, for images with something like Search RegEx
