Exception: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.[]

Dear Forum, I am trying to upload an EPi4 file with lots of pages and I keep getting the following error: The following errors have occurred: Exception: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.[] This doesn't tell me much of why this is happening. I applied the Logging in EPiServer as indicated in the Tech Notes of EPiServer (http://www.episerver.com/en/EPiServer_Knowledge_Center/Documentation/TechNotes/Logging-in-EPiServer/). This is the information that I get from the log but it still doesn't tell me what is happening. 2007-09-05 14:51:53,707 [3572] EPiServer.Enterprise.ExportImportBase.LogError(:0) - 10.5.3 Export/import error: Exception: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.[] Exception: System.NullReferenceException Message: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Just in case, the EPi4 file that I am uploading -- including pages and the templates -- is in the following ftp: ftp://ftp.unctad.org/dollero/ExportedFile.epi4 Thanks. Victor

I'm still trying to figure this out. I broke up the large 8864 into smaller and smaller peaces to see if the system accepted it. Perhaps the server had some sort of limitation on the size of files. I found that some chunks were accepted and others, either smaller or bigger, were not. This sort of confirms that size doesn't seem to matter, or at least in this situation. ;) The problem remains. Any clues on what else could be happening? I've already tried running the sp_DebugTree on the database in case the DB is corrupted but the problem persists. Thanks. Victor

Hi, I get a different error which I have seen once before and solved it by comment out line 53 in /admin/importdata.aspx Then I only get a error that I miss one of your assemblies. E.g. get rid of Container.CurrentPage.PageName. <%#Container.CurrentPage.PageName%> The error I got was: 2007-09-11 16:28:53,796 |scott| 1.2.5 Unhandled exception in ASP.NET Exception: System.Web.HttpUnhandledException Message: Exception of type System.Web.HttpUnhandledException was thrown.
