Importing wordpress.org blog database info here

    I was hosting my personal blog on my own site using WordPress.org. I had a stalker and went into my ftp account and deleted all the files, but didn’t touch the database.

    The situation has been resolved, and now I’d like to import all that db info here, to start a new blog but with my old posts intact. I can see them using myPHP, so I know they are there.

    Is that possible? How would I do this?

    Thanks so much,
    Megan

    I don’t know if it helps, but I’ve tried exporting the database, but I’m only given these options:

    SQL
    LaTeX
    Microsoft Excel 2000
    Microsoft Word 2000
    CSV for MS Excel
    CSV
    XML

    None seem to work when I try to upload them to my new blog here.

    Thanks again

    Export the .sql file (zipped please) , then send it to support@wordpress.com
    Tell me the name of the blog you want it imported into (I don’t want to assume I know) and I’ll take care of that :)

    Completed.

    The above applies to anyone else too who wants to import data.
    All I ask is that you first drop all stats data and tags data. materialmama’s file was perfect but I have had seriously huge files sent before.
