I have my blog on wordpress.com, I want it to be moved on self hosted server.

I have exported data from my wordpress.com blog to XML file, However, When I went to import the data to my self hosted wordpress installation it says file must not be greater than 15MB and my file is of 2257 MB

How do I go to import such a large file?

you should try splitting the file with this tool. I used it several years ago and hopefully it still works with the current export file format.

After splitting you import each of the generated files.
