[Resolved] Export XML file is 4.3 MB, and won’t import

  • I request your help.

    This morning I exported the WordPress site to an XML file. The file is 4.3 MB in size.

    When I try to import it, I get the following error:
    ====================
    Import WordPress
    Sorry, there has been an error.

    The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini.
    ====================

    php.ini does not contain anything related to this. Does it mean I must edit the XML file, or insert some code in the php.ini file?

    I appreciate your help!

    Thanks!

    Searched, and found suggestions for HOW to do it.

    I made the changes required to php.ini, adding the following lines:

    upload_max_filesize = 64M
    post_max_size = 64M

    and modifiyng the following line from 60 to 600:

    max_input_time = 600

    Everything is working great now!
