    Hello there,

    I have a problem with importing my blog from Wordpress to Mu Wordpress. Although the RSS (WXR) file is ~ 13mb I always get error: 'Sorry, there has been an error. File is empty. Please upload something more substantial.'

    So, is there any more ways how could i transfer my blog to mooooo. :)

    Thanks a lot ;)

    Mmmm thats likely to be a php file upload size limit. I think PHP by default only allows file uploads of 10 megs and under.

    If you can access your php.ini then you could increase it.

    I think, although this is of memory, its something like


    You may wish to also check upload time limits.


    If you can't access that then maybe split the file into smaller more manageable chunks. The file is standard XML so should be pretty easy to do this

    Just make sure you keep the headers and footer tags and then drop some of the posts.

    Posts start it would seem with a


    Where XXX is the posts date.

    I did increase the limits, but this did not work neither. however, it seems ok when i split files into chunks of about ~5megs.

    thanks anyway :)
