Support » Installing WordPress » Self hosting wordpress.com

  • Hey guys,

    I am trying to move my wordpress.com site to my hosting (Godaddy). I changed the server dsn so that they point at my hosting but still doesnt work. Godaddy says that everything is fine from their side, and that there’s a problem from WordPress. Apparently is impossible to contact people from wordpress, so here I am: desperate and hopeless. With a client deadline in 12 hrs.

    here’s the site: giorgiobosisio.com –> can anyone help me out, please? What does this landing page mean and how can I solve the situation? The old site is gone too…

    How long ago did you change the Nameservers? It can take up to 72 hours for them to take full effect. Looks like they are set correctly –

    Thanks a lot! Maybe it will come with the time then.

    In the meantime, do you think I can set up an Alias/redirection to have the website live?

    I don’t think so, but in any case, you’d need to ask on the WordPress.COM forums for further help on this.

    But one other question – have you installed WP and imported content to the new GoDaddy site?

    I cannot import content from wordpress.com, can I?

    Anyway, I am re-doing the website completely. For now I just have uploaded a COMING SOON page, which doesnt show up.

    thanks for your help.

    If you don’t care about the content, may not be relevant, but yes, you can move content – see:

    Hi,
    Simple Steps.
    1. copy wordpress from WWW directory and paste it in your new hosting.
    2. Backup your database.
    3. Restore in your new hosting site.

    Enjoy

    @leonard_mca – that’s not possible on a WordPress.COM site as there is no access to the database or files on the server.
