Struggling to migrate from Tumblr to self hosted WordPress

Howdy everyone, I’m in the midst of trying to join the WordPress community with a self hosted instance via Docker. I’ve had something of a journal on Tumblr for the last 10 years but felt it would be best for me to migrate that journal into a space I control.

I was able to get WordPress running and accessible via a cloudflare tunnel, but I’ve been struggling to get the import tool to work. I’ve been able to set it up properly but when I start an import, it’ll just sit there spinning away doing nothing forever.

Has anyone ever experienced anything like this that might be able to give me some insights?

  1. Maybe I’m thinking PHP resource limits? What is the import tool you are using? There may be some sort of log file.
