Tags Error Importing WordPress eXtended RSS (WXR) (2 posts)

    I am trying to move this WordPress-powered site to a new server and I am running into a huge problem.

    First, I made sure this site is working correctly. 2.3.2 in place, internal WordPress tags are working like a champ!

    Second, I exported this site using the WordPress export tool and save a WordPress eXtended RSS (WXR) file to my desktop.

    Next, I went to the new server (again 2.3.2) and selected to import newly created the WXR file. It seems to run OK. WordPress asks me to map the authors. Still OK. Then I got a 500 server error. Reload page, WordPress shows that everything has been imported.

    However, when I jump over the manage my posts I find that my tags have not imported correctly. Instead of showing the tags, WordPress is displaying the tags ID!

    I really need some help. So far, I have not been able to find anything. I tried dumping the database on the new server, but I wound up right back in the same place. The wp_terms table is populated with all my tags so I know that the process is working at least somewhat. Any ideas?

    I've got a few screenshots on my blog at http://ecrosstexas.com/blog/2008/01/tags-error-importing-wordpress-extended-rss-wxr

    Hey there. I am having the same problem. No solutions yet (I tried the patch offered but it did not work for me...maybe it will work for you) but maybe you can move your query over here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/152253?replies=5

    Try the patch and let me know if it works for you.
