  1. importing xml file to wordpress didn't show images

    maybe you need to import the images as well? XML files do not embed images inside them, only the path urls.

  3. ohh nnooooo!
    i'm already in the new hosting. i cant get it anymore.


  4. does this mean that if i transfer to another hosting i should also download the images folder i have?

    well yea sure. XMLs aren't that helpful when moving hosts, you need a FULL backup of your web directory, that way you won't lose any information saved on the site, and can be easily loaded in the new hosting account.

  6. Take wp-content folder as ur backup and upload to ur new host though public_html folder n mysql backup is also important.

    i downloaded my xml andthe wp-content folder.
    but when i upload it to the new host i have, few of the contents are gone. why is this so?

    i tried viewing the library media and nothing is there too when i have uploaded my wp-contents.

    can you tell me whats wrong here?
    i don't want to write those entries again. there are about 7 entries that are missing.

    Check the url's in the XML-file for the missing images, and you will see where they should be located.
