500 - Internal Server Error when importing file (2 weeks already) (2 posts)

    Hi there!

    This is me once again and I'm still encountering the above stated error. Here's what I've done so far:
    1. Uninstalled and Re-installed WP automatically thru GoDaddy. This one didn't solve the problem.
    2. Manually installed WP using FileZille to upload files. And this one too didn't solve the problem.

    The file I'm importing is from a wordpress.com blog.

    I'm sort of hopeless right now because I've been posting this problem for 4 threads in a row already and so far I haven't gotten any response from the moderators (and I'm wondering why). Hopefully, this time someone will.

    Thanks in advance.

    The issue is probably that your webhost doesn't allow more than 2mb or so of data to be imported at once. You can resolve it one of two ways:

    1) You can change your webhost settings to allow larger files to be posted
    2) You can split up your file into smaller files.

    Hope that helps! :-)
