Wordpress 1.5 Exporting/Upgrading Woes

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.

Migrating WordPress Blog to Tumblr

I have a self-hosted WordPress blog in which every post is an image (with alt-text) and a single comment. I'd like to move this material over to a Tumblr blog. The site has two years' worth of material, with about three posts per week. I've done a Google search and it seems there are three methods for migrating WordPress content to Tumblr. All involve exporting the WordPress Blog to XML first, which I've done. [more inside]

Between the present and a Vingian singularity there comes an era where eveyrone is computer illiterate. I'm an early adopter.

I want to set up a personal web space - a blog, some articles and vanity e-mail address type of affair. Unfortunately, I've spent too long using software instead of making it and all my web design and programming knowledge is a hopelessly outdated. What does a person need to know these days if they want to register a domain and set up a not overly complex web page and blog with a service provider who is slightly more scrupulous than the average Batman villain?

Help me help wordpress find my transferred media...

I'm in the process of transferring my Wordpress blog to a new host. So far everything is working just fine, except the media library. I copied /wp-content/uploads/* onto the new system. I see the folders and files on the new server via SFTP, but WP doesn't seem to notice them. Is there some sort of "cache refresh" trick? Do I actually have to manually go in and load all the individual images from the past year via the UI?

Tell me about the potential pitfalls of hosting websites for smalltime clients?

I'm a graphic designer who does a bit of freelance web stuff, but I’m by no means a web developer. I’ve recently started building teensy (a few pages, a blog, a basic paypal shopping cart plugin) Wordpress sites with customized themes for some tech averse self-employed/freelancer friends. I'm considering offering to host these on my web space for a small fee. What could go wrong? A lot of things, I'm sure... I just don't know what. Have you hosted multiple sites for other people on your web space? If so, what do you wish you'd known going in? [more inside]

Bogus web site registrations

I have a web site using Wordpress and a forum plug-in (Simple-Press) that's been around for awhile and has become fairly popular. All of a sudden I've begun getting at least 3 to 6 bogus user registrations each day that are coming from IP addresses in Russia and eastern Europe. I don't really know why or how concerned I should be. They don't need to register to post comments on my blog and Akismet is almost 100% effective at getting rid of comment spam. They're also either not trying to post spam on my forum or they can't get past the Captcha/challenge it uses. [more inside]
