    I have recently moved my blog to hostgator. I exported and imported my blog information, but the media files didn’t come over. My posts all transferred, but in the blog where I had insterted a gallery is now nothing. The code is still there, but nothing appears there. How do I get these files over to my new instance of wordpress?

    Howdy, you have reached support for blogs. Once you are have migrated to a self-hosted installation of WordPress, all question regarding installation, setup, and import, should be taken to the WordPress community on their forums:

    It appears that your images were not imported into your installation, they are still being loaded from Could you please try to export and re-import again? You can export your blog here:



    I have done that several times. I get a list saying that “media files already exist.” It brings over some, maybe 100 or so, but I have over 700 media files total.



    In that case, it sounds like the issue is on the import end.

    Please contact the folks at about this.
