[resolved] Can't Import a WordPress XML file (3 posts)

    I am trying to import an xml from another WordPress site, and I keep getting this error:

    The uploaded file could not be moved to ...directory...

    I was having the problem with WordPress asking for FTP details everytime I wanted to install a plugin, so I defined the ftp settings in my wp-config.php and hoped that would also fix the import problem, but it didn't. I really need to be able to import this way, cuz doing a database dump would be too laborious, me thinks.

    Any suggestions?
