    Hi frnds,

    I am changing my host. I regularly take back-up using wordpress plugin "WP-DB-Backup". But I don't know how to restore it. Can anyone will help me on this?

    It's really quite simple. First you need to download the content of the site. Not just the databases. Then you just upload the site content to the document root on the new server. If you have cpanel, use phpmyadmin to import the databases. Edit the wp-config.php file to reflect the new database name/user/password.
