Timing out while importing XML from WordPress.com (3 posts)

    I have spent the last 3 days attempting to use this to import my XML file of my WordPress.com blog into WordPress. I followed all the directions. I split the file. I even split the file into sizes as small as .10 MB. It consistently times out while importing. My programmer brother spent all night attempting to do it. He changed the server timeout time. He split the file manually. It still times out. After it times out, media files are uploaded, but no posts appear.

    Help, please!

    I had to break my exports down into 20+mb files on the export side and boost the allowed file sizes and timeout values on the import side, but I imported about 11 years of posts, about 56k posts.
