Want to Split Large Exported WordPress RSS XML Files while moving your blog from one domain or server to another?The WordPress Export File size is more than 2 MB the default size assigned by WordPress to Import.
Hey all you WordPress fans. Ever tried to move your blog from one server to another, only to find out that the WXR file that you’re trying to import is too big? Well, you could try fiddling with PHP variables to increase the upload size limit, but even then you might run into some sort of execution time-out. Heck, your server admin may not even let you change these settings.
The way around this problem is to split your humongous WXR data file into smaller chunks. Sure you could do it “by hand”, but wow, would that take forever.
This software requires a PC running Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7 with the .NET 2.0 framework installed. (Over 70% of Windows users can run .Net 2.0 applications — If you don’t have it installed, you can download .NET 3.5 directly from Microsoft.)
Just download the file, unzip the file, and run it. It is a very simple 2-step process to break the large file into smaller, more manageable files (as shown in the image above.)
Also, you should note that if any of your imports hang or fail, you can just hit the “reload” button on your browser and click the “resend” button and it should pick-up where it left off…
