Okay, I successfully installed WordPress 1.5 (strayhorn), and everything looks good. I exported the entries from my MT installation to a TXT file. I used the iconv command on Mac OS X to change the encoding to UTF-8 from ISO-8859-1. I editted the import-mt.php file and added the file to import ("import.txt") and saved the file. Finally I load .../wp-admin/import-mt.php and click on the "Let's go" link.
And... nothing happens.
In Camino and Firefox the busy gear spins for a moment or two and then stops. In Safari I get a sheet that says: "Safari can't open the page. Safari can't open the page "http://localhost/~mark/public_html/wordpress/wp-admin/import.php?step=1"
because it could not load any data from this location."
Help! What'd I screw up?
