    In this case, it is recommended that you upgrade the old blog before moving it.

    SQL query:

    — phpMyAdmin SQL Dump
    — version 2.6.4-pl2
    http://www.phpmyadmin.net

    — Host: localhost
    — Generation Time: Dec 30, 2005 at 12:45 AM
    — Server version: 4.1.13
    — PHP Version: 4.3.11

    — Database: scarty_wordpress

    — ——————————————————–

    — Table structure for table wieonline

    DROP TABLE IF EXISTS wieonline

    MySQL said: Documentation

    ey i tried it and this is the error…

    i dont want to upgrade my old version bcoz im scared to lost my database and to get many errors on my site.

    is there any option that i can do for this? plsss and thank you for the quick answer 🙂

    In the sql file, delete the lines above this one;
    DROP TABLE IF EXISTS wieonline
    those other lines are more for you than the database anyway.

    You have backed up ALL your data ?
