I'm having trouble transferring a blog from a WordPress.com account to a fresh installation on Hostgator.
STEP 1. I used TOOLS | EXPORT from my WordPress.com Dashboard which generates the *.wxr file.
STEP 2.I used the TOOLS | IMPORT from my WordPress.org installation ti import the *.wxr file.
However, when I tried this the import hangs. There is NO ERROR MESSAGE about memory (like a lot of other posters have stated). It just hangs.
When I try to install the same file again it may get a little bit further (i.e. a few more posts and imported according to the dialogue box which appears).
If there something specific that I have to do with a setting in Hostgator. I want to double check before I start messing around with stuff I don't understand.
