I recently changed web providers and unfortunately thought it would be sufficient to save all the wordpress-files located on my former server (via ftp) to get the wordpress-blog with all the posts, modifications and settings up and running again on the new server.
So stupidly I didn’t do any further research and didn’t know about the fact you have to export your blog before you change servers so you can have everything up as it was before the move.
This means: I moved to the new server, changed the database and host in the config.php file uploaded all the content and end up with a rather fresh install of wordpress (default theme & settings, no posts at all, the plug-ins are still there).
Is there any possible way to get the blog up again the way it was? And will it be worth the effort & time (I did have a great bunch of image posts) or should I just take this as a chance to start new?
I’m friggin annoyed with myself right now, since this could have been a rather smooth transition had I donemy research, but I can’t change that now.
Any feedback and tips would be highly appreciated!
