cannot import xml file from wordpress.org w/plug-in's disabled

  1. My wordpress.org blog is constantly down. The host says it is a problem with wordpress... So I'm thinking about moving the posts back to my wordpress.com blog, and pay wordpress to host it.

    I read some discussions that you need to disable the plug-in's before exporting the xml file. So I did that, but still cannot import to my wordpress.com blog. Error:
    "Invalid file
    Please upload a valid WXR (WordPress eXtended RSS) export file."

    Please help. Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is hoiyinip.com.

  2. The blog you specified at hoiyinip.com does not appear to be hosted at WordPress.com.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you'll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don't understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It'll help people to answer your question.

  3. So I'm thinking about moving the posts back to my wordpress.com blog, and pay wordpress to host it.

    Are you aware that the only people who pay wordpress.com for hosting their blogs are those who qualify and are accepted and do pay for VIP hosting? http://wordpress.com/vip-hosting/

    You issue is not one we can help you with here at wordpress.com. Also your host maybe giving you the run-around because I have no problems with my self hosted blog. I frequently deactivate all plugins and export the content out of it and import them into a wordpress.com back-up blog. My self hosted blog is with A Small Orange and they are excellent web hosts with superb support.

  4. One other factor may be this one- my self hosted blog is updated with the latest version of wordpress 2.9.1 and if your isn't that could cause all kinds of problems.

    Bottom line: You must get support here http://wordpress.org/support/

  5. Hi timethief! FYI time4sale used to be my username. :-)

    I was talking about the $10 mapping. I assume the blog is actually myblog.wordpress.com. But when people go to my self hosted myblog.mydomain.com, they see the content of myblog.wordpress.com, but the url is still seen as myblog.mydomain.com? (BTW I just upgraded to 2.9.1. It is still down most of the time.)

    One of the pages on mydomain.com redirects to mypage.otherhost.com. That is actually redirected successfully every time. So I kinda believe the down time of my blog has something to do with wordpress.org...

    Thanks!
