If the content you wish to migrate is quite large you may reach the server’s Time Out limit before the data is copied.

In this case you should try loading the .xml file again.

The system maintains a log of the transferred content and will continue with the remaining data.

Repeat the process until you receive confirmation that the process is completed.

Since you are going to insert new posts and pages, WordPress needs to know who the author will be.

On this page you can select either an existing user as the author of the posts, or create a new one for the imported data.

Consider that you should check the “Download and import attachments” box,

if you want your photos and other attachments to be transferred.

At the end, click Submit.

Consider that this will only transfer your content – posts, pages, media.

All plugins and themes you have used on are their property and will not be part of the transfer.

You will need to choose a new theme and install all the extra plugins needed to your WordPress site
