I have a client that wanted his website redesigned, but the original designer wouldn't give him access to the Cpanel and a lot of other areas to the website.
The original site was all in a Wordpress blog but I took all static pages and set them up separately on the new host and those are working fine but I still need to install the blog and all blog posts need to now be separate from the website in a blog folder.
The usual plugins (WP migrator, etc) for migrating a site wouldn't work (ran out of memory) but the original designer wouldn't give us access to anything so we could fix it (that's why we changed hosts).
However I was able to use the Duplicator Plugin on Wordpress to download the database in an archive and also an installer. I got the database installed (had to call the new hosting company to help) and he said that the installer has no "content" and he can't help me any further because this is not a standard install of wordpress.
Can someone tell me if the database is supposed to include the content?
Is there any way to save the posts other than copy/pasting the content (off archive.org) into a new blog which I assume I may have to set up (which means all posts would have current date and possibly considered copies by google? There are about 30 posts.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
