How to transfer WordPress site? (6 posts)

    I have set up a WordPress site (themes, posts, pages, images in Media Gallery etc). I now have to transfer the entire site (content and everything), to another web server. The other hosting company has set up a WordPress site in my account, so I can transfer what I have done in another web server to theirs.

    Can I do it through FTP?

    I am new in this, so I don't know what file I need to transfer and how I should do it. The only thing I know is to upload the theme I am using to the new server. But what about the posts and pages and images etc.

    Please help ... thanks!

    On your old blog:

    Tools > export

    Choose to export everything. A file will download to your mac/pc.

    On your new blog:

    Tools > import

    Select wordpress. Install the importer and run it.

    Upload the file that was downloaded from the old blog.

    Follow the steps. This should move all posts and pages. Including any images etc.

    Then all you have to do is ftp your theme into the wp-content/themes folder on the new host.
