WordPress.com site not importing to wordpress.org site (1 post)

    Hi all,

    I have followed all of the steps of how to properly move your blog from wordpress.com to wordpress.org.

    When I go to import the xml file from my .com blog, I get the message:

    Failed to create new user for lexdangelo. Their posts will be attributed to the current user.
    Media “cropped-img_8417.jpg” already exists.
    Media “img_84171.jpg” already exists.
    Media “IMG_8415” already exists.
    Media “cropped-cropped-cropped-pretty-and-fresh-2.gif” already exists.
    ...
    etc.

    I have tried to delete all posts, media and attachments and then import my xml file again, but nothing happens other than the images being imported to my media library.

    How do I get the entirety of my blog to transfer from wordpress.com to wordpress.org? Also, how do I get my stats and followers to transfer over as well?

    Thank you so much!
