    I had a similar issue when running a migrate with a large amount of posts. I believe it’s usually related to a session timeout in WordPress.

    When it starts happening, click ‘Stop’ on the importer, then refresh the page and click ‘Start’ again (after you’ve ensured all the database and conversion settings are correct first). The importer should carry on from where it left off as long as you DON’T tick the ‘start a fresh import’ or ‘purge failed import’ options.

    If that doesn’t seem to work, another way (which is a little tedious, but worked for me) is to keep a separate WordPress admin page open (not the one your running the import on) and refresh that every few minutes to make sure the session doesn’t expire.
