Wordpress import size limit

apps

#1

I’ve set up a domain at Dreamhost, and installed Wordpress. I’d like to import contents from a previous blog, but the XML file that the previous blog created from the Export command is substantially larger (35M) than the 7M limit for Import.

Is there any way around this?

Can I, for example, do a dump of the previous blog database and import it into the Dreamhost database?

Is the 7M limit a Wordpress limit or a Dreamhost limit?

Thanks in advance for any informed advice.

Yes, that should work fine!

It is a limit of the PHP installation on DreamHost.

You can also split up the export by posting time and import the parts.
