How to move a WordPress Blog

My blog provider has terminated my old hosting platform, he said he cannot support it anymore. So I’ve been forced to move my dear blog to another one. I tried lots and lots of stuff and nothing worked.


Until I stumbled over the menu entries Export and Import in the WordPress-Tools menu. I exported my old blog to a xml file and imported it in my new WordPress installation. And voilá, all my posts have been transformed from the old to the new blog.  So easy.

What’s not been transferred by this action where all the settings, plugins, plugins-settings, themes, theme-adaptions and the like.   But that is the least part and I’ll do it manually.
