Support Portal  »  Knowledgebase  »  Viewing Article


Transferring a hosted blog to your own self-hosted WordPress blog requires the following steps:

Step 1: Install WordPress on Your Hosting Account

Please refer to our knowledgebase on how to do this should you not have done this already.

Step 2: Export Blog Files

To export your WordPress blog files:

  1. Log in to your dashboard.
  2. From the left-hand navigation menu, click Tools > Export.
  3. Download the XML (WXR) file to your local computer.

Step 3: Import Blog Files

To import your WordPress blog files to your self-hosted WordPress site:

  1. Log in to the WordPress dashboard on your Osirion account. 
  2. From the left-hand navigation menu, click Tools> Import>WordPress.
  3. In the browse box, navigate to the export file that was downloaded to your local computer in Step 2.
  4. Click the Upload & Import File button.

Give the import process some time to complete (depending on how large your export file is) and everything should be imported correctly. Once the upload completes, refresh the blog hosted on your Osirion account to view the newly imported information.
