If you looking XML spliter to split your XML file, you in the right place.
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, Windows Vista, or Windows 7 with the .NET 2.0 framework installed. (Over 90% of Windows users can run .Net 2.0 applications — If you don’t have it installed, you can download .NET 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.)
