WordPress/Vanilla Split - Move Site - Upgrade

I have an old WordPress blog (running version 2.1.3) that has the comment links redirected to an old Vanilla forum (1.1.2 -- last updated over three years ago). In other words, when a new post is created, commenting on each post is closed. Instead, a new thread is automatically created in the Vanilla forum (with a link back to the post) and the "discussion" link from the post leads directly to the corresponding Vanilla thread.

I want to move the domain from my current server to another host (already purchased account) with the same domain and same URLs as on the old server.

Then I want to break this old commenting system and convert the site back to a more traditional blog. Past comments *that were linked to posts* should be put on the corresponding posts -- as if the blog always had regular commenting -- with the correct names and emails entered.

The Vanilla forum should remain accessible, embedded in a static WordPress page.

Finally, I would like the both WordPress and Vanilla updated to the current versions.

Fluent in English, please.

## Deliverables

(1) Back up WordPress/Vanilla databases

(2) Backup WordPress/Vanilla files

(3) Place a temporary page to redirect all attempts to access the site to a page that explains that the site is being moved/updated along with the expected completion date. (Something like, "Mormon Momma is being upgraded. Check back soon.)

(4) Move site from my old server to a hosted service (on FatCow, I will provide account) **with the same domain name**.

(5) Restore commenting on all blog posts.

(6) Write a script (or some other method) to move only those Vanilla comments associated with particular blog posts (along with correct usernames, email addresses, and dates) from the Vanilla forum to the comment section on the corresponding WordPress blog post. In other words, I want the post comments that were diverted to the forum to be taken off the forum and put back on the posts individually (with usernames, email, and comment) as if the site had always been run as a r**egular blog**. Please leave the thread in the Vanilla forum, but only with the *very first comment* pointing back to post. Close the those threads that were put back on the blog posts.

(7) Upgrade WordPress with default theme to current version.

(8) Upgrade Vanilla to current version.

The current blog can be seen here:

******Info from Summary***********

I have an old WordPress blog (running version 2.1.3) that has the comment links diverted to an old Vanilla forum (last updated over two years ago). In other words, when a new post is created, commenting on each post is closed. Instead, a new thread is automatically created in the Vanilla forum (with a link back to the post) and the "discussion" link from the post leads directly to the corresponding Vanilla thread.

I want to move the domain from my server to another host. Then I want to break this old system and convert the site back to a more traditional blog -- with commenting directly on the posts -- while maintaining the Vanilla forum for open discussion. I also want both WordPress and Vanilla to continue to share the same database so that users registered on one side are registered on the other.

Finally, I want the end result to be updatable following the usual updating procedure.
