I am having some trouble importing another Wordpress site over to my Dreamhost account. I am trying to do “The Easy Way” according to the docs by exporting the XML file, and importing to my site here at DH.
When I do the import of the file, it lets me choose the users to map the authors to, and then when I hit submit there, to try to do the actual import, it seems to run for a few minutes then I get an “Internal Server Error.”
I’m trying to figure out what the error is. I checked the logs under ~/logs/site/http/error.log, and I’m not seeing anything.
I’ve done the import to a WordPress site that I set up on my local computer and had no problems doing the import. And on DH I’m using the 1-click WP install. I’ve read about other people doing it without any problems too.
Any ideas why my old site data won’t import? If I have to do it manually, I guess that’s no big deal.
