Here is my problem: I have been blogging for about six years now at Blogsome.com. I've had no problems with it whatsoever, until a few days ago, when they suddenly announced that they were going to close down on a very short notice. So at the moment I'm looking for a new blog.
At the moment I'm thinking of going for a cheap hosted server. My problem is that I want to import all my old posts in the latest version of WordPress. This is problematic because:
- The SQL dump I got out of their backup page is really big (about
30MB). Will this safely import into a new WordPress site?
- Blogsome never updated their WordPress version, so it has been stuck at WordPress Version 1.5.1 for more than half a decade now. How can this SQL dump be safely imported into a new version of WordPress? It's unfortunately the only way I managed to export my blog's database. Blogsome does offer a WRX-file backup option, but that one unfortunately is broken.
So what would be the smartest way to handle this?
