I am trying to get an offline duplicate of a live WP installation. I did an export of the full .xml file and downloaded it to my computer. But when I try to import it with wordpress-importer I get:
Sorry, there has been an error.
The uploaded file could not be moved to /home/spike/Projects/_Websites/public_html/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/07.
I have checked settings in lampp and have set all the directories in the path to 775 (rwxrwxr-x) but it still won't upload it. I even created the 2011 and 07 directories and manually installed the plugin because I am having some ftp issues that are still not sorted out (subject for another forum post...).
Any ideas as to how to debug this and what is causing it (my ftp problems, or...)?
