After some interesting attempts at importing my old posts and comments, followed by some manual post recovery and editing of the MySQL database, it appears my site is completely restored and running on my new host. All files should hopefully have migrated too… but let me know if you spot anything missing.
While I was restoring everything, I took the time to update my theme and make my modifications the proper way using a child theme. I’m still not 100% satisfied with the adjustments; the menu at the top could be reduced in height by a few pixels and the line under the header should always span the page. I am entirely stuck on how to achieve those, so I would be very appreciative if any CSS experts out there want to post fixes for those.
Now, on to posting the insightful blog posts I am so well known for!
