mass-import (6 posts)

    I want to import many posts (1000+). I worked with the plugin "csv importer". The plugin worked great, but because of timeouts the plugin managed to import just 300 posts.

    Is there another possibility to import many posts? Perhaps via XML-RPC or Atom Publishing Protocol? Or is it possible to import data via mysql (phpmyadmin)?

    Why not break the import down into 4 smaller chunks?

    I want to import many 1000+ packets. Some have more than 10.000 posts...

    @hafer: Have you found a solution to this issue? I have about 500,000 posts....lol.

    I don't want to spend the next couple of months learning databases just to get this done, but I fear that will be my only choice.

    I think you might try to add this line inside your wp-config.php file -
    It set timeout for infinite and might be helpful.
    Of course, you must remove it later when done.
    I will be happy to hear if it helped...

    I thought I updated this thread with an asnwer. You need to work on your max Execution command line in your wp-config file. Most servers have an "auto-time out" feature to protect you from spammers, but you can override this with some mods to your htaccess and wp-config files. If you don't know what I mean, contact your hosting provider and they will walk you through doing int correctly.
