Restoring backups (4 posts)

    I've noticed that you can import posts from various different types of blogs, simply by logging in. But, we can't restore a blog hosted on http://www.wordpress.com without having to go through the rather complex and time consuming procedure of, effectively, restoring the database manually. I've also noticed that wordpress.com allows us to import wordpress backups and to backup the databse in few touches of a button. To my mind, this doesn't quite make sense.

    Well, wordpress.COM is a bit ahead of .ORG. With luck, the next .ORG release will have the necessary easy import.

    Until then, you use this plugin which takes care of it: http://www.technosailor.com/wordpress-to-wordpress-import/

    Read the instructions about installation.

    Thanks, any idea when the next major build will be?
