Wordpress 1.5 Exporting/Upgrading Woes
April 12, 2012 5:48 AM Subscribe
I have an old WordPress 1.5.2 installation. I'd like to either export the posts to a new domain/fresh install or upgrade the current install. I expected that to be easy, but getting my posts out of my existing blog does not appear to be simple at all. I only care about the posts and titles: I'd be fine with losing existing comments.

I'd appreciate any help that anyone can provide. I'm reasonably technical but I have no background in databases, so please speak slowly and use small words if necessary.
I found this old AskMe
, but either Wordpress has changed in the last four years or I didn't understand the database issues well enough to make it work, because even after synchronizing the two SQL databases, my new Wordpress install didn't show any of the posts from my old install. Similarly, trying to import by RSS doesn't work, because my RSS feed only shows the most recent posts, not the entire history of my old site.
Thanks in advance!
