Can I use Back up Buddy to move my 'free' blog from wordpress.com to a self hosted site.
If the answer is 'no', can I have a refund for the 10 site license I just bought? :(

Hi Flora,

The free blog on a wordpress.com site doesn't allow the installing of your own plugins so BackupBuddy won't work on such a site. If you have an active account/subscription then when asking questions on the forum please do so while logged in with your ithemes username/password so we can tell who you are if need to point you to a more proper member's forum to post in or contact you in some way.

Welcome to the forums. Be sure to post your questions in the correct forum and don't forget about the new and improved search function located in the top right of the forum pages. The gear/wheel symbol next to the search box will give you more options for advanced searching. Thank you and have a nice day.
