Thread: How to import database to Wordpress?

    How to import database to Wordpress?

    Is there a script program or something on how to import big database to Wordpress? Or is just plain old hard work by 50 midgets?

    How can you import loads of pages to a Wordpress blog with no database as well just copy and paste?

    first export everything using WordPress Admin Panel -> Tools -> Export.

    Then import in new wordpress installation using:

    WordPress -> Admin Panel -> Tools -> Import -> Pick "WordPress"

    that shall do the trick another way is exporting the actual wordpress database using phpMyAdmin or similar web applications and import it in the new site (but I guess it might require a bit of configuration)

    good luck to you

  3. i think its just under Tools in the wordpress dashboard where you can find import , export and upgrade.

    phpMyAdmin is one way.

    I found a video on the subject as well:

    oh. WordPress' import function does support non-WP databases. check the import options under WP Admin -> Tools -> Import. you can see a variety of import options, it even supports RSS feeds.

    Can you have that database in a CSV format for example?
