    Hi there,

    I'd created a WP blog with various content but had to change hosts quite suddenly, and I backed up the database through PHPMyAdmin because I read that I could transfer everything across to my new host. However now that my domain's nameservers are changed to the new host, I've reinstalled WP on a new database but can't figure out how I can import the database so the blog looks like it did on the original host?

    Can anyone advise me?

    Thanks

    You shouldn't Reinstall wordpress on new host, instead you should backup all files(better zip them all) and upload it to your new host. Then you can simply create a DB on new host & import the Backup'd Database through PHPMyAdmin and enter new DB's name, username, password in wp-config and you're ready to Go!

    Here is the Detailed Instructions on how to Transfer Wordpress to New host
