** Please Help !! ** Can’t import xml file!

  • I recently set up webhosting with Laughing Squid and I am trying to import my blog from maxrudle.wordpress.com.

    It seems like the import function is broken!

    * my wordpress files are in their own directory called bl*
    * I have created an uploads directory /wp-content/uploads/*
    * I have given the uploads directory write access *
    * I have given wp-content write access *

    After I select the file for import and hit submit I get a page asking me to select author. I have tried both using the default author and mapping to an existing user. Both give the same results.

    It then leads to the following page:
    http://www.maxrudle.com/bl/wp-admin/admin.php?import=wordpress&step=2&id=15

    Which gives a BLANK white screen (of death). 🙁

    If I go to the address bar and resubmit the page then I get a page asking me “are you sure you want to do this (no/yes)”
    I then hit yes and get another BLANK SCREEN.

    I checked the server and the xml file was copied to the server but nothing else was done.

    Please help me import my blog!

    Thanks in advance!

    I checked the server and the file is being uploaded but
