    I am moving my wordpress.com blog to a wordpress.org blog on my own domain. I went to export my old files and import them into my new site, but it’s saying that the import file is too large. How do I remedy this, as I don’t want to lose any posts!

    Make sure you’ve deleted all your spam, and consider breaking it up into chunks. Several people have found it necessary to do that.

    Thank you for the suggestions! I have deleted all of my spam, but the file is still too big (almost 3MB). How would I go about splitting it up to move it?

    Good question. Unfortunately, I’m not sure. I think it’s by date, but I would not think a 3mb file would be too big to import. Try it a few times, because sometimes it goes through okay. Sorry I can’t be more help; I’ve never done an import myself, only seen answers in the forum and that is an answer I cannot seem to find for you.

    I just tried importing, but it’s saying the filesize is too big for my php.ini – apparently the default upload is 2MB. Now I need to figure out how to change the setting (*boggles*)
