[Resolved] Transfer from one site to another?

  • I recently got myself a new domain, and I would like to transfer over my wordpress journal to the new site.

    My old site, currently runs version 1.5 and my new domain I just got installed the current version 2.0.

    Would it be as simple as just importing the databases for the comments and entries, or would there be more to it?

  • Your should backup/export the whole database.
    Then replace the new db with the old one (hope you don’t have posts in the new one!) and – IMPORTANT – run the upgrade.php before you do anything else: meaning no opening, no admin, nothing before the upgrade.

    Or, alternatively, you can easily export/import DBs in between same versions.
