I am exploring the options of moving to a self-hosted WordPress site. When using the export option in the admin interface, all the assets (images, pdfs etc.) remain in the wordpress.com directories and there doesn't seem to be an option to physically move the assets to the new provider.
When using the paid 'guided transfer' option, will all those assets be transferred to the new site as well? Also of course custom styles or whatever else I am not thinking about right now?
How does this work anyway? Would I provide access information to the new provider and then the WordPress team would do everything, so when I wake up the next morning the new blog is exactly the way the old one was?
Thanks for your help.
The blog I need help with is lvib.org.
