    Trying to import WordPress to WordPress after installing WordPress on my server.

    The export goes fine but when I try to import I get the following message:

    Warning: gzopen(\\nas32ent\domains\m\matthenryphoto.com\user\htdocs\blog/wp-content/uploads/\\nas32ent\domains\m\matthenryphoto.com\user\htdocs\blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/wordpress.2010-07-10.xml_1.txt) [function.gzopen]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in \\nas32ent\domains\m\matthenryphoto.com\user\htdocs\blog\wp-content\plugins\wordpress-importer\wordpress-importer.php on line 88

    You are not the only one who has experienced this. There is similar issue here.

    The link to the other issue on another message is for an error in line 73. The error on this post (same as my error) is on line 88:

    Warning: gzopen(\\nas44ent\Domains\c\carillonvideo.co.uk\user\htdocs\Blog/wp-content/uploads/\\nas44ent\Domains\c\carillonvideo.co.uk\user\htdocs\Blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/wordpress.2011-01-31.xml_8.txt) [function.gzopen]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in \\nas44ent\Domains\c\carillonvideo.co.uk\user\htdocs\Blog\wp-content\plugins\wordpress-importer\wordpress-importer.php on line 88

    Did anyone find a fix for this?

    Regards,

    Andrew.

    Hi,

    I just had this issue this morning and after talking to my webhost who said it wasn't a hosting issue I did some research and found the following link:

    http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/15325#comment:5

    So I went into wp-admin/import and changed line 76 from:

    1. $file = addslashes( $file['file'] );

    to

    2. $file = $file['file'];

    Save the file and then try again. I hope it works for you as well.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    Hi Stephen,

    I would be very interested in knowing what kind of operating system you're running on your hosting server. I was running Windows Express and Fasthosts didn't have a clue. They kept saying it was WordPress that was at fault. Strange then, that when I upgraded my hosting OS to Windows Server, all my problems with importing and auto updating to WP v3.0.5 disappeared never to return.

    What IS Windows Express anyway? I never heard of it before....

    Regards,
    Andrew.

    Hi,

    I was on a "Specialized Windows Platform" by my hosting service and I couldn't properly maintain wordpress while on that. I then changed to a "windows basic" hosting plan when I ran into this issue.

    The fix I posted above was able to get my import working on my "windows basic" platform.
