Yesterday in the wee hours of morning after dazedly feeding my 3-month-old and being unable to go back to sleep, I got the brilliant idea to upgrade my version of wordpress hosted on yahoo. I'd read about the auto upgrade plugin, that it worked on yahoo and dove right in...

So, long story short, I completely hosed the upgrade. Now, I have my blog "saved" as a sql file in the format used by wordpress version 2.0.2 or something similar (whatever yahoo gave me) and I'd really, really not like to lose it as it contains over a year of stuff.

My question: what is the best way to get this sql mass into the latest version of wordpress? In particular, I notice that the schema has changed across versions, so I need to understand how I can "mash" the old schema into a new db. Any ideas, suggestions, etc will be greatly appreciated. Thanks,

From command line you can use: mysqlcheck -A --auto-repair
