I created a test platform by importing an SQL file via MyPHP Admin. The link to this test platform is: http://focusingonwildlife.com/test-platform/ - I'm having two types of problem which may be related:
Problems Importing Posts via xml file - the error message reads:

Sorry, there has been an error.
This does not appear to be a WXR file, missing/invalid WXR version number
Uploading Images to the Media Library - the error message reads:
Warning: copy(/var/www/web286/html/focusingonwildlife/test-platform/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/Great_Saphirewing_02.jpg) [function.copy]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /var/www/web286/html/focusingonwildlife/test-platform/wp-admin/includes/file.php on line 348
I have access to the server and have changed the wp-content/uploads/ directory and sub-directories to 775 and 777 - nothing helps.
I have also done a re-install of wordpress-3.2.1 and allowed it to update to wordpress-3.3.1 on-line. Still the same problems.
