Can I do a Partial Database Restore?
I would like to do a clean install of Wordpress because I have so many duplicate pages from various themes "dummy" content. I would then like to upload only my database of posts. I have exported and downloaded wp-posts.sql to my computer. My question is, can I just upload that file (the posts data) to a fresh install of Wordpress? Thank you. Simon
In phpMyAdmin, the "Drop" option is available on the same line as the table itself. You will see the following options: Browse, Structure, Search, Insert, Empty, Drop. Yes, you can do the new WordPress install first (which is what I did in my test) then go in and edit the table and import your wp-posts.sql data.
