You said you already have a WordPress blog. Where is it hosted? Can you access the database? If so, you could try importing the database into your WordPress appliance.
Just a thought but if you don't have too many users, recreating the user accounts in the new WordPress installation may be easier than figuring out how to import the whole database from that other installation.
I have one hosted on Wordpress.com- I can delete it and start over, but I can't use the same name if I do. I don't have access to the database, that I know of, because I'm not hosting it. (As far as I can understand, but please correct me if I'm wrong!)
Same situation here....got a pre-existing wordpress.com (free) blog, looking to get more flexibility and control over my blog......am I barking up the right tree?
But you probably need to consider what will work best for you. I'm a huge fan of TKL but in some situations it may not be the best option available to you.
Regardless google has lots to say about migrating from WordPress.com (hosted) to WordPress.org (self or 3rd party hosted) so there is plenty of info out there.
Please don't take this post as a fob off, it's just that I don't know a lot about it and rather than lead you astray with guesses...
I'm trying to access FTP or SFTP using Filezilla. I've gotten as far as downloading PuTTy and logging in, but I don't know what to do from here. Any pointers?
Also, I may be throwing darts here, but I was able to connet to sftp://xx.xxx.xxx.xx using root, password, and port 22, but the files in the screenshot below look unfamiliar. Any explanations?
Is to use the included phpMyAdmin WebUI (port 12322 OTTOMH but best to double check).
For more general TKL questions probably best to either find a more relevant thread to post on, or better still start your own, rather than hijack someone elses.
PS Sorry for slow reply - I've been away and slowly getting back through the posts.
