[resolved] 10MB WordPress Import Limit - Ouch! (4 posts)

    When I went to do an import with WP3.0b1
    Tools>Import>WordPress
    It told me:
    "Choose a file from your computer: (Maximum size: 10MB)"
    Crimminy! That's a small limit! Why? How to deal with? This should be higher.

  2. That's generally the size most servers allow via PHP. Actually ... I wonder if that's being called from your server and not WordPress, per sey...

  3. Running a network? Check the options page. You can restrict size there too.

    10 meg for an import file is pretty large though - tons of posts. The import file doesn't contain uploads, just links to.

    Got it. I found that if I unchecked that box then it went to my PHP limit of 200MB. Thanks.

    The Blogger import file is 12.9MB containing a bit over 1,400 posts and almost 7,000 comments. I ran it through the import and am examining it now to see if everything worked. It look okay so far.
