Import, Export (9 posts)

    I have a free WordPress blog and recently made the switch to a hosted blog. I'd like to import everything from the old to the new...but the max is 2mb and my export file is 2.19. How would I go about reducing this without deleting anything from the old blog and making another export file? I just don't want to lose anything from the old blog, but in order to make it smaller it seems from my limited knowledge that's what I have to do.

    Did you delete the spam queue before exporting? Usually most folks don't do that and wind up with huge exported files.

    right. I've been looking around and some of these responses to similar questions say that you can change the upload maximum, but I don't know where or how to do that. Will I need to contact the host to change the upload max?

    No! I didn't even think about the spam. I'll try and do that.

    I guess the answer it's yes, or no (if you have knowledge and permissions to create a local copy of php on your account and change this setting). I had an account on Dreamhost and I remeber they make clients do this.

    Deleted the spam, but not enough to allow me to import.

    Could I go into the notepad file and take out things there? All I need to do is shave off just a bit

    Best bet would be to contact your host as some of them get rather offended if endusers try to make changes to php settings without their approval.

    Here's a solution for you to try though if you want to: (First hit on a google search)
