    I have tried to export the xml file about a dozen times. It will not transfer any post I have made. I have tried breaking it up and it still does not work properly. I got an error in my Ftp that says XML Parsing Error: prefix not bound to a namespace
    Location: http://thebittersideofsweet.com/thebittersideofsweet.wordpress.2013-03-30.xml
    Line Number 554, Column 2:
    <atom:link rel="search" type="application/opensearchdescription+xml" href="http://thebittersideofsweet.com/osd.xml" title="theBitterSideofSweet" />
    --------^

    I am stuck and do not know what to do???

    The blog I need help with is thebittersideofsweet.com.

  2. I tagged this thread for a Staff follow-up. Please subscribe to it so you are notified when they respond.

  3. FTP shouldn't be involved in the import process at all.

    You'll import the file using your browser via Tools -> Import -> WordPress in your blog's Dashboard.

    If you're actually seeing the FTP error in in the browser at Tools -> Import -> WordPress, you'll need to contact your hosting provider. If they refuse to help, the folks at http://wordpress.org/support/ may have some ideas.

    To clear up any confusion, WordPress.com and WordPress.org are two different entities: http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    WordPress.org has complete documentation and support sites for self-hosted/installed versions of WordPress.org at http://codex.wordpress.org/ and http://wordpress.org/support/
