Hi, I'm trying to migrate a blog from wordpress.com to a standalone wordpress.org installation.
My question is about wordpress.com
The blog has over 1000 posts and a lot of attachments, the XML generated from an export is about 11Mb. WordPress.org is unable to accept the 11Mb file so I found a splitter which works well to create smaller XML files. However, I still have a problem with the import, wordpress.org just times out, I've tried changing every timeout setting on the host with no luck. Each file goes through about 30 'items' and then just the page just stop loading and nothing else is imported.
Anyway, is there some other way I can please get the data off the wordpress.com site? A SQL export? An RSS file? Anything? I cannot get the import of the XML to work on wordpress.org unless I manually import about 200-300 XML files and really, really don't want to do that.
Thank you so much!
