    I'm trying to move over from wordpress.com to self-hosted, but I keep getting an error 404 when trying to import the xml file, though it does seem to import all/most of the images. I saw someone recommend splitting the xml into smaller parts, but I keep having the same issue.

    Any one else have this problem?

    I've had this problem several times.
    However usually the importer keeps running, the error almost always happens at the time of importing the images.

    Try to import will give the error... Then go to the Media panel and see if it importing images and has a txt for the XML.

    Wait (refresh the page every 5 minutes) to the txt file to disappear!

    Then try importing again and there will be all ok.
