    Tools- Import - wordpress, selected file to import, got error:
    Sorry, there has been an error.
    Missing a temporary folder.

    Can anyone tell be what that file needs to be. It clearly needs to be in the "uploads" folder. Tried "temp.php" - no luck.

    Ah, thanks to my ISP (host4profit.com) all is solved. Apparently I needed access to a /temp folder on the system.

    Lessons learned:
    1.Backup
    2.Make a short list of requirements to send to ISP when setting up hosting
    - ensure there is a /temp file to enable import.
    Cheers
