I have a wordpress export file that is larger than 2MB. Unfortunately the import-limit, as shown in the Import-tool inside Wordpress is 2MB.

I have been searching on the internet, and it appears i should be able to change this using a .htaccess file inside my root-folder.

So I created the following file

<IfModule php5_module>
#set max upload file size
php_value upload_max_filesize 30M

#set max post size
php_value post_max_size 30M

#set memory limit
php_value memory_limit 64M

but it does not work. Any ideas?

If you are on some of our newer servers, setting PHP values in .htaccess would not work. Instead, you will need to increase your upload limits via php.ini, as described at http://docs.webfaction.com/software/php.html#id4.
