    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/

    The blog I need help with is careertiger.wordpress.com.

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

    Not yet – can you use 9 files of 10mb each?

    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?

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

    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?
