Completing the Process: Migrating WordPress to Tumblr
With everything prepared, you are now ready to begin the migration process. Depending upon how many posts you have on your WordPress blog (and indeed how many were exported) you can expect this to take anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes.
Open the tumblr-export.php file in Notepad and check the first few lines – these require editing by you to in order to allow the import correctly take place.
And enter the filename of the XML export file you uploaded to the tumblr folder on your PHP hosting in $xmlFile =, your Tumblr account login in $tumblr_email = and your password in $tumblr_password =.
Save the tumblr-export.php file, and then upload it to the tumblr folder. Finally, to complete the migration, go to your PHP hosting and run the migration script. For instance if you created the tumblr folder on your own blog hosting, enter the URL www.myblogtitle.com/tumblr/tumblr-export.php.
The script will then run, and your posts will be migrated to Tumblr - all you need to do is open your Tumblr blog to check them.
