Moving from 32-bit to 64-bit system? (3 posts)

    I'm currently using WAMP (32 bit) to self-host my WP blog on Windows 7. However, I am in the process of replacing the 32-bit machine with a shiny new 64-bit one. The new machine will have the same network config (IP address, DNS Servers, etc.,) and directory structure as the old one.

    My question is how to I migrate my WP blog to the new system.

    So far, I've installed WAMP (64 bit) with no trouble, but at this point I'm not sure what to do. I know I'll have to recreate the DB tables, populate the records, copy over the wp files, etc, but...

    Is there a straightforward way of doing all this? A migration tool of sorts?

    Thanks, in advance,

    Michael

    Short answer - All you have to do is;

    a) Export your old database and save in safe location, copy all wordpress files and save in safe location

    b) Import old database on new server, copy old files files to new server.
