How to import wordpress database from personal host to this wordpress.com accoun

  1. Hi! I have this new .wordpress.com page now. In the past i used to use .info domain with personal host. Now since I didn't paid for domain anymore i want to move here with all my database, archive and stuff. So the problem is i can't import my database. I tried to log on my host which redirected me to phpmyadmin page and from there i exported a .xml of my data. Then in here after i tried to import the data it says: "Sorry, This does not appear to be a WXR file, missing/invalid WXR version number". I also tried to log on name.info/wp-admin but it redirects me to the old expired .info domain (name.info/wp-admin). So i'm a little confused. Suggestions? I don't wanna lose my database

    The blog I need help with is gabrielaneagu.wordpress.com.

  2. No, you cannot import databases here. You can import blog contents, but nothing of a higher technical level.

  3. So i can't import .xml database ?

  4. No, you cannot.

  5. So how can i proceed?

  6. Create an export file, not a straight database. That's on the Dashboard->Tools->Export. Then on your WP.com blog, go to Tools->Import and import the file there.

  7. i can't export from my dashboard because it redirect to old-domain.info/wp-admin which i don't own anymore.

  8. so mai dababase starts with:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <!--
    - phpMyAdmin XML Dump
    - version 3.4.3.1
    - http://www.phpmyadmin.net
    -
    - Host: sql.hostname.com
    - Generation Time: Jun 02, 2012 at 06:12 AM
    - Server version: 5.5.16
    - PHP Version: 5.3.5
    -->

    <pma_xml_export version="1.0">
    <!--
    - Database: 'database name'
    -->

    ends with :

    </table>
    </database>
    </pma_xml_export>

    i must do smth cause everything is there..i cheked and all my comments, posts are in this .xml

  9. Well, have you tried using the Importer?

  10. it shows an error. now i add a string with <wxr.. code or smth like that and it didn't showed up errors..but the archive doesn't appear anywhere..

  11. if i try to log-in into my blog which i acces by the host address it redirects me to the my-domain.com/wp-admin ..
