Iâ€™ve been trying to transfer a Blogger.com blog to WordPress following Andy Skelton's and Catsudon's tutorials with the goal of preserving the comments. I have very carefully and precisely followed their direction so I think I'm doing it right - could be wrong on that though. :) I have left a message for them to see if they have ideas but thought I would check in here to see if the great knowledge pool of the support forum could pull my bacon out of the fire. Enough buttering up of the WP Gods, Tcha? :) Here's what's happening:
When I press the Republish button on Blogger.com I am getting the error:
550 550-Quota exceeded: blogtestwp/2005_12_01_wordpress.php wonâ€™t be saved 20714 Kbytes used (101%) - authorized: 20480 Kbblogtestwp/2005_12_01_wordpress.php
I have been trying to get a response from Blogger support on this for five days but to no avail. I just get their automated message replies.
Nobody on the bloggersupport group at yahoo knows what is happening.
I have tested this with two different web servers for the FTP destination and both have gobs (1GB and 153MB) of free space available as well as bandwidth. I can FTP to both web servers fine from my computer and do not get errors. The error is only happening for Blogger making me think that Blogger's got problems which is why I'm switching to WordPress in the first place. I have tried this with two different test blogs on Blogger (Iâ€™m practicing before trying it on my real blog) and get the same results on both to either of my web servers via FTP for blogger Publishing.
I saw someone else on Andy's comments got the 550 error but their message is different (regarding missing file) as opposed to the error I am getting about Quota Exceeded.
Any idea what is happening and how to fix it?
