Support » Plugin: Blogger Importer » Error when importing blogger .xml file into wordpress

  • Hi there,

    I am a brand new WP user (and barely know what I’m doing!) and have a Blogger blog I’m trying to transfer over to self-hosted WP. I’m having trouble importing my blogger .xml file into WP (via bluehost).

    I followed the instructions on but my posts nor anything else never got imported.

    When I used the Blogger importer, it appeared to load and even indicated that the .xml uploaded 100% but after that, all that appeared was a button that said Submit but there was nothing to submit. I navigated away to another page and then went back to the upload page and this message appeared:

    Sorry, there has been an error.
    File is empty. Please upload something more substantial. This error could also be caused by uploads being disabled in your php.ini or by post_max_size being defined as smaller than upload_max_filesize in php.ini.

    My .xml file is about 10MB and definitely has ‘post-related stuff’ in it. I checked my php.ini via the PHP Settings plug in and saw that and my upload_max_filesize and post_max_size are both set to 64M and file_upload is ON.

    Upon reading other suggestions, I tried setting max_execution_time & max_input_time = 300 but that didn’t help either.

    I tried clearing my cache on the site and on my brower (Chrome Version 67.0.3396.87 (Official Build) (64-bit)) and even rebooted my computer.

    I’ve been told I’m working in maintenance mode but don’t know if that has anything to do with it.

    I’m not sure what else to try and am hoping someone can help me out!

    Thank you!

    Christine 🙂

  • You have to increase these limits in you php.ini file

    ; File Uploads ;
    ; Maximum allowed size for uploaded files.
    upload_max_filesize = 100M
    ; Resource Limits ;
    max_execution_time = 120     ; Maximum execution time of each script, in seconds
    max_input_time = 120	; Maximum amount of time each script may spend parsing request data
    memory_limit = 1024M      ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (8MB)
