importing tumblr blog to 2.3.3 (2 posts)

    I have been sent a tumblr xml file. When I try to import I get this error:

    Is its parent directory writable by the server?

    I am unable to change permissions in Plesk as it is not permitted to do for the uploads folder. I tried the content folder but made no difference.

    I do not have an option for tumblr to upload o I tried WordPress as I was told the file was exported as WordPress.

    I am struggling with this, so please let me know what other info you require to help me.

    Many thanks

    First off, can you update WordPress to the latest release? Your version is ancient and full of security holes.

    The parent directory should be writeable by the server. Maybe your hosting provider has some strict limitations in place?

    Try this migration tool:
