Wordpress to Advanced

I installed the Wordpress blog via one-click in Easy mode and now I’m finding I need the Advanced mode.

How do I get my blog transferred to Advanced mode?

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Best, Tim

You’d have to go to Admin Tools and export your data. It’s not perfect, but there’s no easy way to switch from Easy to Advanced.

After the export, you’ll have to install the Advanced and then import your data.

I say this because I don’t think the database the Easy install uses is readily accessible. I have some Easy installs, but not WordPress, and their databases don’t show up in my Manage MySQL section.


Thanks Scott, but I don’t know where the Admin Tools are…


In the left column is a Tools section.


Thanks for your help thus far. I exported no problem but on Advanced install I got this:

We were unable to set up wordpress as requested at:

The problem was directory /home/equnited/impactbiztools.com is not empty! Please re-install, specifying an empty (or new) directory.

Please correct this and go to our web panel and re-submit your
wordpress installation request.

Thanks, and sorry about that!

You’d have to delete the Easy Install and then set up a Fully Hosted domain for impactbiztools.com. Sometimes you have to wait for an old setup to clear out of the system (up to a day) before setting up new hosting.
