I wanted to import all my content from my wordpress.org blog to the new blog on wordpress.com. However, a error occurred which said my file is invalid.
The file is exported from Tools>Export and it is a xml file. I didn’t open or edit it before upload. How come I can’t import the content?
The versions need not be the same, but it’s possible that an old version of the exporter could have been problematic. Can you double-check that the end of your export file didn’t get lopped off? The last line should be:
If your export was very large, it’s possible that your server choked and delivered only part of it. If you know you have a lost of posts, please try breaking the export into a few parts by selecting date ranges, categories, etc., and see if that helps. Also, it’s a good idea to purge spam comments before exporting, as they only bloat the file. If all of those things fail, please open a support ticket to request further staff help.
