Error Cause:

At the time of importation (of Tags in our case) server that hosts the blog is more demanding than usual, and memory limit (RAM) allocated execution PHP scripts It exceeded. For this reason the server rejects the connection or stop importation. "Returned document invalid response from xmlrpc Server".

resolving Error:

As with the error ""Solving is all .htaccess. You will need to add a line to increase memory limit assigned account that is blog web hosting. To do this, add the. Htaccess line:

php_value memory_limit 256M

The amount 256M to "memory_limit'sets maximum size expressed Baiti on a PHP script can use. Limit "memory_limit" is set to default 128M the file php.ini (Config site PHP_INI_ALL server for PHP) on most servers that reuleaza PHP 5.3.10. In the past, before PHP 5.2.0 value was 8MAnd with the release of version PHP 5.2.0This value was set at 16M.
Before importing Tags in WLW You can increase this limit over 128MBut must take into account and total memory Web server. Directive "memory_limit" virtually prevent erroneous writing a PHP script to consume all available memory on a server. It is recommended that after import to delete this line from. Htaccess to return to the default value set by php.ini.

If you do not have access to the "memory_limit" change settings, you will need to contact the provider hosting your blog. For security and performance reasons, most web hosting providers restrict account access to "sensitive" of the server.
