    How long does import usually takes? It’s showing “Retrieving a list of all WordPress files…” message for about 3 hours now. Should I keep waiting? Also I’m moving from Windows server running PHP 5.4 to Linux server running PHP 7.2 – is that a problem?

    Hi igb10,

    Could you downgrade PHP on your Linux website from 7.2 to 5.6 and let us know how it goes?

    Hi Pim,

    So here how I made it work:
    When I created export, I disselected “plugin files” and “media files”. And after that I was able to create successful export .wpress file to download.

    But then I couldn’t upload for a new WP site for some reason. So I uploaded it manually to backup folder. Then it wouldn’t open backup file and I tried about 4 times. So when I almost gave up – it opened on the 5th try! But then again failed to install. Then on the 6th try it worked!

    After that I manually FTP all my media file from my old site to the new one. And then I just did a fresh install of the same plugins on the new site, that I had on my old site.

    So I didn’t have to downgrade PHP and all my database and the rest of files seem to work on the new Linux servers, as they worked on my Windows server.
