WordPress import feature file size problem (2 posts)

    Hello I was moving my wordpress blog to a new host. Have exported the wordpress and the xml file is about 7MB. Now installed a fresh wordpress copy on my new host and tried to import but it gives a file size problem.

    On the import page it shows max limit 5 MB. But I asked the web host and the max. limit is 35 MB which you can also verify in the info.php of my website.

    So what can be the problem then.....?

    The limit can be set differently for different directories. One directory may have a 35MB limit, and the other a 5MB limit. It is a possibility that the directory into which you are uploading your blog has different settings. If you have the option to edit a custom php.ini change the upload_max_filesize to be 10MB or whatever you want it to be and make a copy of it in your wp-admin folder or whatever other folders may need that setting.
