Screwed MT!

I have made a wrong decision!

There has been an update for WP, for a looooooong time but I did not update it because my hosting does not have the supported version PHP. I ignored the update all these while, until yesterday.

I checked with the support if they are going to upgrade PHP to the latest version. He said they will but not sure when (what???) and he suggested to switch from current Windows hosting to Linux. Without thinking twice, I said ‘Yes’!

While FTP’ing to my hosting, I saw a folder in the root directory – cgi-bin – it reminds me of Movable Type. Previously, I had trouble installing MT. So, I thought… no harm trying again. I downloaded the latest MT, followed the instructions and dang… same error message like before. Tweaked around and finally got something new, managed to see the configuration wizard and I happily filling up and clicking away. Next — Missing Database Modules. What the… Gave up and back to WP.

Another problem, the database I have exported earlier could not be imported to my new hosting. Some SQL errors. OMG! All my posts are gone!

Can I say lucky? I have WP installed on my iPhone and I could still find old posts in there. Now, I have to retype every single posts back in again.
