Moved to self hosted

    Hi I have moved from having a free WordPress site with a purchased domain name to the same domain name using godaddy and still powered by WordPress. I've had so many problems and would love help with them all please!

    1. How can I move my email subscribers/followers over from the old one to the new one?

    2. Why can I no longer use the WordPress app? It tells me it can't connect to my site.

    3. To log into my blog I use my username (munchiesandmunchkins) with new password however to log into this forum I had to use my old password. Should my old account still be there? I'd rather just have one account - all content had been moved to new blog anyway.

    HELP please. I'm a bit of a novice and have no clue on what to do. I just assumed as was still using WordPress that it would be straightforward.
    I need to use the app as it is so much easier.

    The blog I need help with is munchiesandmunchkins.com.

  2. 1) staff will do that for you now that I've flagged this for their attention. Note that you MUST have the jetpack plugin installed first.

    2) the location of your blog has changed. Delete your old settings and input the blog from scratch again.

    3) what you do with an independently hosted blog OR the WP.org forums has nothing whatsoever with what happens to your accounts here. You can't delete a WP.com account at all.

    Thanks for your quick reply. I have the jet pack plug in.

    What do you mean by settings? I've deleted the app and reinstalled but still nothing. The problem is the URL was the same before as it was a purchased domain so was http://www.munchiesandmunchkins.com even before I moved to self hosted.. Does this confuse things?

  4. It confuses the app when you get it wrong. It's http://munchiesandmunchkins.com/ with no www. You can delete listed blogs on the app and re-install them. Try that.

  5. Hi there,

    1. How can I move my email subscribers/followers over from the old one to the new one?

    Your subscribers and followers have been transferred as requested. Just a heads-up that any WordPress.com followers who opted to receive email updates will need to re-subscribe again on your new site through the Jetpack signup box, otherwise they'll only see new posts in their Reader. Non-WordPress.com email subscribers will continue to get email updates.

    2. Why can I no longer use the WordPress app? It tells me it can't connect to my site.

    3. To log into my blog I use my username (munchiesandmunchkins) with new password however to log into this forum I had to use my old password. Should my old account still be there? I'd rather just have one account - all content had been moved to new blog anyway.

    As raincoaster mentioned, the username and password that you use to log into your WordPress.com site and the ones you use to log into your self-hosted site's administration areas are different.

    When you set up your self-hosted WordPress installation, you should have created an admin username and password - those are the ones you need to log into the app and blog.

    Just let me know if you need further help.
