If you’ve ever imported a XML file which is above 2mg in size, you might receive an error message caused by the file size being to large.
This is normally caused when the file size is above the limits set on your server.
You can increase these limits in your php.ini file which should enable you to successfully import a larger file size.
If all else fails, another option is to reduce the size of your file by splitting it into smaller files.
In this tutorial, we’ll take a look at how to use the WXR Splitter application which splits WXR file types into smaller files.
