Hello all, thank you for taking the time to lend a hand.
I previously had a dreamhost site that I deleted but before I did I saved a dreamhost produced backup which came in the form of two files.
Now I have another website up and going again and I would like to take a few posts from my old site and put them on the new one. I don't need to do anything fancy, just would like to access the old posts so I can copy the text.
I set up a localhost with wordpress with mamp, fumbled through it with the help of youtube videos, in the hopes I could restore the backup to there and then access the posts I was hoping to.
**Edit: I am working on a mac ***
Well I got the local wordpress set up on my computer, but I don't know how to get the backups I have uploaded onto my local wordpress page. I figured I could figure it out once I had the local wordpress site set up but I guess its a little more difficult than I thought.
Anyone feel like walking me through it?
Thank you again for taking the time to help out.
