    I'm getting this error when I tried to import xml which is exported from my blog to local wordpress.

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 35 bytes) in C:\xampp\htdocs\wordpress\wp-admin\import\wordpress.php on line 87

    Any Idea how to solve this problem?
    Thanks in advance.

    Best Regards,
    Michael Sync

    P.S: XML file szie is 7.25 MB.

    Hi Michael

    I've read a few other strands on this, but none of them appears to solve the problem. I'm trying to import a blog from a Dreamhost Apache install to an Netcetera IIS install, and the import script triggers this error:
    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 24576 bytes) in \\nas1.hosting.netcetera.co.uk\inetc710$\virtualservers68647\hand-embroidery.co.uk\NewWebsite\wordpress\wp-admin\import\textpattern.php on line 621
    The Dreamhost php config allows a 90M memory limit, whereas the IIS config sets it at a measly 8M. I'm trying to get Netcetera to up the limit. In the meantime, I visited one site which advised adding
    ini_set("memory_limit","12M");
    at the start of the script (in my case textpattern.php) to increase the memory size for a single script. I upped it to 90M but still nothing.
    My XML file size is 40K.

    Do you have access to php.ini file? That's where the 8MB php max mem value is defaulted.

    Might check with your host about boosting it.

    Thanks - I'm on to them. Evidently 8M is too small to run upgrade-schema.php as well.

    Just to follow up on this - Netcetera wouldn't increase the memory allocation on a shared hosting plan. I did eventually manage to export and import the blog in .sql format via phpMyAdmin.

    I was only able to run upgrade-schema.php after deactivating all plugins.
