Apologies if this has already been addressed in the forums, but I couldn’t find any mention — easily, anyway — of my specific problem. I should start with that I am a WordPress beginner, so if the answer to this question is a simple “no”, please do feel free to be forthright about that. I have at least a small amount of technical comprehension regarding the installation process, but not much.
I’d like to transfer my WordPress blog to a new host (same domain). I’ve already cancelled with my old host and have procured a new one. I have downloaded all of the contents from my old host via its CPanel and they are saved in a secure place. My old host handled the WordPress installation for me, so I do not have my database information (at least that I know of).
Can I transfer, or must I start from scratch?
Thankfully, the blog hadn’t yet been particularly well-established and I used an add-on to upload posts in bulk via Excel, so if I have to start over, I will. Ideally, however, I’d like to avoid that.
Thank you for any help you can provide.
