To have more things under my control I moved this blog from a shared hosting plan to a VPS (virtual private server).
However, when I imported WordPress posts to the new location, things didn’t go as expected and the structure of threaded comments got broken. When you read popular posts with active discussions, you might not be able to identify who responding to whom. In new posts, threaded comments should be working.
I’m trying to figure out if I can resolve the issue. Does anyone have experience moving a WordPress (2.7.1) blog with threaded comments to a new site?
If you find any other glitches, please contact me either via this blog or via Unmask Parasites contact form.
Update (a few hours later): RTFM! I found this Codex article about moving WordPress. Restoring MySQL database from a full dump worked much better (in terms of preserving structure of threaded comments) than simple “Export/Import”. There might be issues with plugins if they store absolute paths in a database though.
