    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.

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

    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.

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

    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>
