Here’s the situation. . . I had a .com address and changed it to a .net. I decided to keep the old .com for a while so that I could use it to redirect old traffic to my new site. I asked bluehost, my host, to reassign the .net as the primary site on my account, to avoid trouble several years down the road when I intended to delete the .com. I was warned that this process would delete everything, so I made a full backup of the site using an FTP program. So far, so good. I reuploaded everything. Now, the wordpress blog doesn’t work on the old domain. I called bluehost and they say that what I’m missing is a file with the extension .sql, which has all of the information in it. Is this true? All the images are still there in my local files, as are the modifications I made to the themes. How can I recover the text?
