    I’ve exported the content of my blog multiple times and not all articles are included in the exported XML file. The exported XML is incomplete.

    Any reasons why this is happening?

    The blog I need help with is lesvosnews.net.

    I’ll flag this thread for Staff attention. Please provide detail re: what’s missing for the XML file.

    Thousands of articles are missing from the XML. Latest article included in the file was posted on January 2012. Some thousands (probably 4-5000 articles are missing).

    Also, channel and rss tags are not closed at the end of the XML (probably because of the partial export).

    Update:
    I changed my php.ini settings for max downloads, max execution time etc and I’ll try to download again the XML. I’ll post my findings here but I still need some info regarding the possible reasons why not all articles were not transfered on my 1st attempt. I guess I’m not the onlyone facing this issue…

    Unfortunately, I retried to export the content of my blog but again, the export is incomplete. More than 2500 posts are missing.

    Can I have some official support for this please??

    I’m sorry but Staff are away on their meet-up until July 23rd and they are currently monitoring threads. They only show up here periodically to deal with the threads that we Volunteers have flagged for their attention.

    I understand, but this thread was flagged for their attention 24 hours ago. Is it normal to wait so long for a support request?

    Be patient. The thread has been tagged for staff to look at it. You continually posting won’t make them read it any quicker.

    I understand that and apologize for posting more than once, it’s just that I really need help on that.

    OK, I’ll be patient, thank you :)

    You may have too many posts for a single export shot. Have you tried only exporting specific months? Does that work for you?

    The migration tool I’m using to convert WP posts to Drupal nodes transfers works with attachments only with the full export XML. If I export separate months, image paths are not converted correctly. So no, partial exports will not work for my case (and for every WP to Drupal 7 Migration scenario).

    I’m exporting the content to my local server, having increased all necessary limits (download limit, max execution time etc) in php.ini configuration file. Everything seems to work fine from my side, so I think that it’s a WP issue, as the downloaded XML is missing the closing <channel> and <rss> tags. For some reason, some WP posts are not included in the XML.

    For example, I tried again 2 days ago and the last article included in the XML file was from July 16, which is a better result compared to my previous attempt, during which many thousand articles were missing (everything after January 2012).

    I would appreciate it if you could provide me with some help in order to get a final & full XML export (sometime during the next couple of days, after the domain name transfer proxess is confirmed) or make it easier (WP server configuration?) for the whole process not to be interrupted during my next & final export.

    What is the file size of the export file you’re receiving?

    Ok, that’s odd. Would you please try one more time now and let me know what you get?

    It’s even worse now, the file is only 60.1 MB.

    Only 7430 posts (out of total around 9151 published articles) are included.

    The latest article included in the file was published on 26th of December, 2011.

    Hm, this is no good then. I’ll see if I can get one of our developers to generate a full export for you.

    Hi, agrorama. I’ve sent you an email with a link to your export file.
