I've recently been faced with this challenge of transferring a WP site I purchased from the existing hosting account to my host. The old owner has sent me the zipped backup files & the database files (i.e. 2 compressed files). Unfortunately, my hosts (Hostable) are proving to be complete morons (excuse my french), & I am left without any resource/solution to this problem. Any advice on this will be greatly appreciated. Thanks! PS. I apologise in advance if this is not the correct section to post this query.
