Importing Posts from Old WP Site Into New Site With SQL Backup File
Could really use some suggestions here – this is one I’ve never tried before.
The old site was built on a really old version of WP with a custom theme. We changed hosting companies, and did a bit of reorganizing of the content. So, instead of importing the old files, I started from scratch with a fresh install of 3.2.1, upgraded to 3.3, and then installed Thesis. From there, I’ve added the pages and their content, done the initial configurations for the site and Thesis, and now want to get the blog posts imported in.
But what I’ve got is a .SQL file, and all the help/codex files seem to suggest that to import this, I need a blank database – which, if I’m understanding this correctly, would require undoing everything I’ve already done.
If I went about this backwards, well, I’ll take my licks but I’d really rather not have to redo all that.
Is there any way to cull *just* the posts themselves from a .SQL file and import them into a fresh WP install without deleting everything that’s already been set up?
Many thanks in advance –
