Hi,
I have an old XML file that was generated using WordPress 2.9.2. I tried importing this file to the current WordPress version that I am using (3.6) but I got a white screen instead. Does anyone know how can I do this import succesfully?
Thanks in advanced

I don’t think it’s possible importing files from WP 2.9 since the DB configuration has changed dramatically since that version.

Try installing a WordPress 2.9 copy. Then import the XML file and upgrade to WordPress 3.6 manually using these steps http://codex.wordpress.org/Upgrading_WordPress_Extended
