I have a VPS hosting account with Web Fusion and am migrating one of my Wordpress sites to it.

The Wordpress export file is about 29 MB. At first i encountered an Internal Server Error after attempting the first upload. After doing some research and checking the server logs it appeared to be a problem with the FCGID and PHP ini settings.

The Host is using a Plesk control panel through which I increased all the memory limits and restrictions to 64M and allowed file uploads.

I have also gone through changing the FCGID limits in the Apache modules and another 2 config files on the VPS.

It all seemed to go OK. I restarted the server to apply the changes, however now when I attempt to upload the XML file via the Wordpress Admin Panel I get is the Import Wordpress title and a blank page. No posts are uploaded and it does not give me any further options about the media import. There also no further loggs in the error_log file on the server to suggest any issues

Any suggestions?

You could try paring down your XML import file to just two or three posts (see this answer for more details) and see if it imports those successfully. – Ben Miller Sep 6 '13 at 14:52
