My Migration story
I had to migrate my Wordpress blog to another host
recently and was trying to find a way to do it. I found a
few pages on this topic but some of it requires shell access.

This guide is for newbies like me who have limited/zero
knowledge on MySQL database and Wordpress.

my Wordpress blog to another host sometime in the future
