[Documentation] Problem importing from vanilla1 to vanilla2. Vanilla Porter.

Hey!

I've exported my old db and tried to import to a local install of V2 using the porter but I get the following error: Could not parse import file. The problem is near line 1.

THis is what the first lines look like:

`Vanilla Export: 1.5.3, Source: Vanilla 1.*

// Export Started: 2012-04-12 16:39:58 Table: User`

Any ideas where to start de-bugging?

    I think there are problems sometimes when you don't select the option to save the export file to your server, but rather serve it through your browser and save that document. The browser can sometimes wreck the line endings.

    If you don't see the option to save to the server then make sure the porter script is in a folder with write permissions.
