    I am trying to move my blog to another host. one of the things i am reading is that i have to export and download my blog away from the wordpress.com server. i have no idea what database the wordpress blog uses in order for me to create a SQL file ( wordpress codex). does anybody understand this?

    I wish i would of hosted my blog a long time ago because transferring my blog has become such a hassle. any help would be appreciated

    thank you erika

    The blog I need help with is lightandfreeblog.com.


    Hi there,
    First yiu hire a web host and set up a WordPressorg install. Then you install a theme and plugins. Then you can export and import your content.
    See these:
    export > http://en.support.wordpress.com/export/
    export/import links > http://en.support.wordpress.com/blogroll/import-export-links/
    themes cannot be exported
    text widget content cannot be exported and must be copied and pasted


    If you prefer you can purchase a guided transfer.
