    I'm trying to import from the current release of Blogger [I have a bunch of friends I'm hosting on my dedicated box, and I'm trying to get them off of Blogspot and using real logware :D], and ... all I'm getting when I publish is the cafelog.php file, not the archive files.
    Do any of you have enough Blogger experience to lend this long-time GM hand a hand? I mean, today's the first time I've even logged in to Blogger.

    Be sure to set the archive to monthly. And republish the "entire site". That should get you the archive files you need.

    The user I was working with already had monthly archiving set, and I was getting 553 errors in publishing the archives when I ran the "Republish Entire Site" routine.

    that was teh reason i could not import my blogger settings. one fine day, it just refused to publish the file on my ftp server. that was the day, i discarded all the blogger entry as dead html pages on my site. and vowed never to use Blogger again. B2 saved me. ;)

    Um, okay.
    None of which really tells me anything.

    unfortunatly, unless you can get Blogger to publish the site, you are screwed. I think all you can do is to keep trying until it works. From what I've seen by the activity on BloggerForums, there have been problems w/ Blogger recently, and this might be related. Also, make sure that the FTP info in the Blogger settings is right. I had a problem where I didn't have the dir specified right, and it crapped out on me.

    Yeah, at first I was giving it the full path, and then I realized that the account was already getting me into /home/username/.
    I'll probably give it another whirl later on. I just didn't know if there was anything specifically foofy. I know the directions in import-blogger.php didn't exactly match up with the UI as presently laid out in Blogger.

    Would you be willing to send in some updated directions when you figure things out?

    I wouldn't dream of not sending in my findings, Matt. :)

    I've succeeded in getting the files published over [having really not changed anything from before ... gotta love Blogger ;)], and I've run import-blogger.php, but ... like a moron, I forgot the admin pass, and I don't have phpMyAdmin access here at work. Le sigh.

    I'm trying again now with 1.0, and with the 20040117 nightly, running wp-admin/import-blogger.php gives me the following error:
    Warning: main(upgrade_functions.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/rmfoblog/public_html/david/wp-admin/import-blogger.php on line 19
    Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required 'upgrade_functions.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/rmfoblog/public_html/david/wp-admin/import-blogger.php on line 19
    Is this an issue where some of the CVS code busted up the function from loading? I needed to load import-blogger to get the format to stick Blogger into.

    Okay, try out the 1-22 nightly. This should be fixed.

    Will do as soon as I can get out from under the fun of my job today.

    I've run it now, but I'm getting odd results. I'll need to check the db when I have access to it via phpMyAdmin.
    Matt, if you want to see the files, I can tar them and email them to you.

    As a courtesy to others can I suggest that people include links to anything they are discussing. - infact why not put a statement to that order above the post message input box. Something like 'Please, to help make this forum useful to others, include any relevant links."
