Recover posts and pages from expired domain (no xml x-port pre expiration)


Hey guys! Quick question, what is the easiest way to recover posts and pages from an old wordpress site? I have the database files, the wordpress site files captured pre-expiration, but the client did not export the XML to import into the new site pre-expiration. Do I just pull the specific tables in database and transmute to new? These files are from an old php version as well.
