I have a blog on wordpress.com and am about to move to a privet host using wordpress.org package. i thought i should try it out on a local server before buying the space so i could work out how it all worked.
i downloaded the export file from my .com blog and go to import it to my .org local hosted blog. the rest of the blog works fine with all the plugins and stuff and everything else. it clearly reads the import file as it asks if the users should be mapped to already existing users.
when i click next on that step, i get the standard "page cannot be displayed" page from my browser, the same as you get if you try to access the web offline page.
can anyone help? i have tried the wordpress to wordpress plugin too.
Edit: it uploads the first post and the one draft post. please help!
