Scary Thing to do

Today is a big day I decided to explore uncharted area of my skill.

I'm going to move the database from here to Because I Write. Isn't it brave.

First of all is backup the database. Used the famous skippy wp-db-back.
Note that the plugin doesn't start to work unless you have a backup directory ready for it. Once it's done you could download it to your computer.

The backup is in gz format, I had to upzip it using Winzip. It turned out to be a 1.18Mb sql (text) file.

I'll have to find & replace all instances of old url to new url because I'm moving this to a new hosting. Notepad didn't like this and this could be a long process. Make sure you are working on a copy of your sql file just in case.

Pretty late now, let's call it a day.
