    I tried importing my posts from my blogspot account but it gives me this error

    Could not connect to https://www.google.com

    There was a problem opening a secure connection to Google. This is what went wrong:

    Does anyone know what this means? Does it mean I wont be able to transfer my posts?

    Possibly your server does not have SSL compiled for CURL. Or maybe Google just updated Blogger so WP can't import from it anymore. I hope David Peralty from BloggingPro doesn't read this topic.

    You should never mention my name if you don't want me to read something :) And if Blogger changed something, you can be sure the WP devs are working on it.

    I highly doubt that though. Try it on a different server, or ask a friend to try it...once its imported to any WP install, it can be exported in WordPress Export Format to be imported in your new blog.

    Even I am facing the same prob. After I tried the straight method of importing from blogger (with the same error as above), I tried to import it in a dummy wordpress.com blog.

    While I could import successfully in that dummy wordpress.com blog, export from thr to my site is not happening.
    It gives the following error,,
    WordPress could not create the directory ----wp-content/uploads/2008/01
    Is the site writable ?

    Then I created the said path (the folders) and now I am getting this error..

    The uploaded file could not be moved to /home/*****/public_html/******/wp-content/uploads/2008/01.

    Any clue ?
