Restore form - Error: Specified file failed upload test.
January 19, 2013

Hi everybody,

I need to move a form from one wordpress installation to another. I have no phpmyadmin access so I've tried the backup function of cforms.

So I used the backup function on installation 1 and saved the text file to my windows 7 pc. But when I try to upload it to my new wordpress installation it gives me the error:

Error: Specified file failed upload test.

Both sites using wordpress 3.3.2 and cforms 14.6. 

I've take a look at the text files. They are ANSI and displaying in notepad++ some cryptic symbols (NUL). When I open the file with the normal text editor, I see chinese text.

So how can I export a correct text file and import these settings to a new wordpress site?

Thank you for your help!
