    I had a site of 10 posts one 1 hosting account. Then I exported all its contents using wordpress export tool. Then I tried to import this xml file in other wordpress site using import tool of wordpress. But media attachment fails to upload every time. I searched whole online forums , youtube but none is helping. I need immediate help. Any useful guidance is highly appreciated.

    What type of media files are they? Does the hosting have a size limitation on it for uploads?
