Wordpress import issues

I have a new website for a friend of mine who used to have his blog on .wordpress.com
I installed wordpress and now I have to import the file he exported there. The problem is that the file is 35M and the maximum allowed on dreamhost.com is 7M. Is there any chance I can import this blog?

If it’s a pure SQL file import, then you can do it via command line:

If it’s a restore executed by your WordPress installation, you can increase the 7M limit:
