I'm having trouble transferring my wordpress.com account to wordpress.org account which will be hosted by hostgator.
I used the "quickinstall" feature on hostgator cPanel and received a new username and password for wordpress. I can log into my new account wordpress.org and my website (theinvestingoracle.com) changes to a default template. I then change my automatically generated password. My forum reading leads me to believe that I'm correct up to this point.
However, once I try to transfer my content via the wordpress .xml file importer. I get logged out and my site goes back to being at wordpress.com. What I mean, is my site content goes back up, I'm no longer on the default template, etc. Then I get logged out automatically of my new wordpress.org account and I get redirected to this: https://theinvestingoracle.wordpress.com/wp-login.php
My new wordpress.org account information doesn't usually work for about 20 minutes to an hour. Then I'm able to log back in and I go back to the same default template.
I don't think its my nameservers as I changed it yesterday and it is pointing to hostgator. (I think)
Can someone help me understand what I'm doing wrong?
