Hello guys. I am a wordpress.com blogger looking to migrate my blog to a dreamhost hosted wordpress.org site. I want to know if anyone else on here has attempted this & how successful they have been in importing their xml file. I have repeatedly attempted this via godaddy & hostgator and neither have been able to successfully install my xml file. godaddy’s system timed out and resulted in a blank page & hostgator repeatedly resulted in error messages - one was failed to import and the other was post already exists.
I desperately want to migrate my blog but all I have is the XML file avail via admin page on blog site. I have repeatedly attempted to obtain a SQL Dump file but to no avail.
can someone let me know if they were able to migrate their site successfully? I don’t really want to spend another week trying to do something that will ultimately fail.
thanks in advance for your help guys.
