    All done. Have fun!

    Remember to update the passwords and roles of imported users.

    The blog I need help with is fayettevillecomputerworld.wordpress.com.

  2. http://fayettevillecomputerworld.net/ is the website. I have uploaded the theme without any issues. I have tried changing the memory limit. The XML file is only 1MB though.

  3. I have the exact same issue and have not been able to find an answer anywhere. I'm trying to move to a self-hosted site and my initial export/import was successful a month ago. I recently re-exported and re-imported but got this error. I've reinstalled WP on my hosted site numerous times and am now getting this error every time I import any backup file, even the original one that worked a month or so ago.

    In fact, if I import an export file from a brand new blog that only has the one "Hello World" post, I'll still get this error.

    Anyone have any ideas?

  4. I contacted my server host and they had to moved everything in the public_html folder into a .old folder.

    From there the steps I took to get it working:

    Fresh install latest WP.

    Appearance>Themes and install the theme.

    Permalinks (Y) other two options (N)

    Install & Activate Plugins.

    Tools>Import>Wordpress>Choose File.

    Select your XML/WXR file. (make sure there is not a order you need to install if there is multiple)

    Check the download and import box when prompted to.

    Proceed through the steps and it should work.

    You can go to appearance > pages and see if it updates those for you.

  5. Thanks for the update. It sounds like you installed the theme and plugins you have on the old site onto the new site...essentially, making sure your new site mimics the old site before importing. Is this correct?

  6. Yeah, essentially I felt it would be best to start from scratch, because the problem wasn't with the XML file itself, and even with a clean install of WordPress it still wouldn't work. But having all the old data transferred off the public HTML fixed the issue.
