Import large XML into WordPress.com blog

  1. I am not able to import a large WXR file (90mb) into a new WordPress blog. I'm trying to move from a self hosted WP to WordPress.com. And I searched forums and Googled but there are no answers.
    Blog url: http://careertiger.wordpress.com/

  2. Have you tried creating several smaller export files and importing them?

  3. Not yet - can you use 9 files of 10mb each?

  4. I have flagged this thread for Staff assistance. Please be paient while waiting for a response.

  5. The file itself cant be split, but if you're using the latest version of WordPress, you should be able to create category or date-specific export files.

    Does that work for you?

  6. Unfortunately, I do not have access to wp-admin due to a WP malware. So I have run an XML export from phpmyadmin.

  7. Oh, we won't be able to import that anyway, we can only directly import WordPress's WXR-formatted XML export file.

    Are you definitely not able to recover access to the blog itself?
