    Hello,

    I have downloaded my Wordpress .xml file from old server and uploaded to my new server (through Wordpress) and everything seems to work fine except all my images failed to upload.

    Does anyone know a fix for this ? I have searched google and can't seem to find an answer.

    I don't understand how an .xml file will hold images. Maybe this is not possible since the images were never uploaded to new server ?

    You just answered to yourself. You need to upload photos to new server, and to keep structure of paths / links like you had on old server.
