need to reset XML importer after import fail

  • Author
  • #823366


    I’ve been trying to import my old .ORG wordpress blog to my new one, the XML file is about 12 MB and the importer has been stuck on “Processing” for over a week. Anyone know how to manually reset the importer so I can try again?

    I’m going to break the XML file up into per-year pieces so the files are smaller fr my next try. Its frustrating to see many others have had this problem, but the only resolution so far has been for a Happiness Engineer to reset the importer for us. There must be a way to do this ourselves?


    I may just have to file a bug with WordPress Trac on this issue if there is no way to manually reset the thing. 12 MB is a pretty reasonable file size IMHO. I’m hoping some other users here have figured out some workaround.

    The blog I need help with is



    This is to let you know I have flagged this thread for Staff attention.



    It looks like your importer has already been reset.

    Please feel free to try again.
