How to transfer your WordPress content from one blog to another?

Step::1 First, you need to log into your old site’s WordPress dashboard.

Step::2 From there, go to the Tools section and click, “Export.”

Step::3 In the Export screen, you’ll have several options available like All content, Posts, Pages & Media(Here, I am showing you how to move All content.)

Step::4 Click the “Download Export File” button on the bottom.

Step::5 Now click on the Save File option to save the xml file to your desktop/Laptop Once the file has been saved, you can continue on to the next step.

Step::6 Now log into the new WordPress website’s dashboard

Step::7 Go to the Tools section and click, “Import.”

Step::8 In the Import screen, you’ll see a variety of options for blog types. Since we are moving content from one WordPress site to another, we want to use “WordPress.”

Step::9 Directly under “WordPress,” you’ll see a link “Install Now,” click on it to install WordPress module

Step::10 Now Click on Run Importer.

Step::11 Next click on the Browse button

Step::12 Upload the xml file which you downloaded earlier

Step::13 Click on Upload File and Import

Step::14 In the next screen, you’ll be able to assign authors to the old content. You can import the old author directly, create a new user login name or assign the posts to an existing user on the new site.

Step::15 Finally click on the Submit button.

In this way WordPress will then transfer all content from the old site to the new.
