How to use an old WordPress 2.6 DB on a new install (4 posts)

    My DB got erased after using my host's auto-update feature and I'd like to use my old DB in a new WordPress install (restoring my posts and pages). I've searched around and haven't been able to find a good tutorial, can anyone help?

    so install 2.6.3

    then go in with phpmyadmin, drop all the wp_ tables, and import your old backup.

    assuming you made the backup from within phpmyadmin OR the MySQL cli there shouldnt be any problem.
