Importing from Textpattern (1 post)

    Installed WP in five minutes. Really, really nice. The problem is, I have two years of posts and comments in a Textpattern installation. I discovered the import textpattern script, and the updated one, but neither seem able to log into my webhost(s). I have checked my login info and server addresses, but every time I try to run the script I get the "tIt looks like your database information is incorrect. Please re-edit this file and double-check all the settings." error.

    Is there some other way to import this stuff? I'm excited to try this new WP version, but hesitant to start modifying my installation until I'm sure I can actually import all my old material. Any advice appreciated!

    P.S.
    Ahem. Using localhost instead of the actual servername worked. For anyone else interested, the import script I used is discussed in this thread:
