Backup, Import & Export? Non-deletable scraps on FTP??
So, I decided to take the plunge and upgrade from WPMU 2.8.4 and BP 1.01 to the latest WPMU 2.8.6 and BP 1.13.
Before upgrading, I decided to backup my entire MySQL table using the WP DB Backup tool – http://www.ilfilosofo.com/blog/wp-db-backup – and it create a .sql.gz file.
However, when I go to Tools -> Import to get all my data (posts, pages, members, blogs, etc) back, it only wants a WXR file. Do I have to import my backup using phpMyAdmin or another such tool?
The second part of my question would be why do I have some folders leftover from the upgrade that are unable to be removed from my FTP? These folders/files are located in wp-content/blogs.dir/ with numbered folders contained within containing a dated folder 2009, Avatars and an album folder with images within.
I only noticed this because I thought I had deleted all my files off my server before doing a manual install/upgrade. Yet when I logged in for the first time, my old profile picture from my last install was displaying. I’m using a new DB, so that tipped me off to look at the FTP. When I try to delete these folders I receive the following error:
550 Delete operation failed.
Any idea? Thanks
