I am beyond frustrated right now. After a week of issues just getting WP3.5 installed on my self-hosting site - I now cannot get my wp.com blog posts to show on my self hosting installation. I've talked with my hosting provider - he made a few suggestions - I deleted and re-created my database and tried importing the xml file using phpmyadmin. (I had previously followed the WP.org instructions to install using the import feature on my WP installation, which did not show up in my Posts . . . but when I look in the data base in my CPanel - the files are there!) I am at my wits end and don't know what to do next as my host can't help me, I can't use the WP Guided Install because my host is not on their "approved" list . . . and I've followed WP instructions to a T with no success. I'm reading through the forums . . . but so far everything I read is like 2 years or more older . . .
