    Basically, I want to move all my blog including the theme, posts, plugins, etc to another hosting. I use hostwinds and for the first blog I used the cpanel auto install

    Thanks for your help

    You need to backup all your files into a zip and download it. Next, you have to backup your database. Move both to the new hosting. Extract the files, and upload the sql into phpmyadmin.

    There are tutorials on how to do this, step by step.

    May I ask what host you're moving too?

    I use hostwinds as-well and they are really pis$ing me off with spamming me wanting me to buy VPS.

    Very easy,

    Backup your source code by ZIP or TAR.
    And download your database

    -> move to another by uploading your script in ZIP or TAR and extract it.
    Upload your database and please make sure you configed your wp-config.php exactly

    Just use Cpanel, and do a full back up and give your full backup to the new host. The whole process can be done in 1-2 minutes. Let me know if you need a host.
