    Question restore a WP site w SQL db and WP folder?

    I had a WP site w PowWeb. I used a paid theme called Enfold. No special customizations just reg WP and the Enfold theme. I downloaded the entire WP folder and parked the account. Uploaded the WP folder to another host (Linode) and slowly realized I was clueless and WP had an export/import feature I should have used. DOH!

    Status-
    Paid and got PowWeb acct restored.
    Downloaded the SQL database that my WP site used. (verified by looking at the wp-config file)
    No way to load my old PowWeb site as domain is now using different nameservers and the support rep could not tell me the internal address to look at my site. (Grr)

    So- is there any hope to get the WP site going on the new host with only the SQL database and the WP folder?

    Thanks

    I had help and they discovered the SQL export from PW had an issue. There was an issue with a line that sets the format- he edited it and was able to import the DB and the site is migrated and fully functional.
