Well, the error is pretty self-explanatory.
Was it 4mb after you zipped it or before? If the latter, trying zipping it first. If 2MB or below, load that to your cpanel then unzip.

So, unfortunately, I am not familiar with wordpress, sorry
Having said that, I would say that:
1) You should look at the file structure of where you exported from, upload the zip to the root of the new location and unzip such that it mimics the "exported" structure
2) You should bear in mind that blogs are database-based. This means that it isn't enough to just zip and unzip files. I assume you have also exported the database from the old location, for importing to the new location (this might also include using the same username and password you used to set up the blog at the old location, but I stand corrected).

@yawatide, pls can U help me with breaking an xml file into 3. They said thats one can break the 4mb file into 3 or more and Upload it separately.

Open the xml file, look at how many lines you have, divide by 3, copy each third into another file, save it, upload to cpanel

^ surprised u dont use wp.

Wp would have saved u time b4, during and after the project.

Wrt to the issue above, i believe you can increase maximum upload size by editing php.ini
let him come and explain his work around sha

yawa-ti-de:I splitted the File into four. Making sure that I used a proper opening and closing tag.

one time i exported a wp blog and it was 14mb (size of exported xml file), and my new installation had an import limit of 2mb, i almost lost my mind, it was for a client! here are more solutions just incase:
1. export the database through phpmyadmin instead of using the wordpress export feature
2. call your webhost (if u're not on a ds or dvs) to temporarily increase php upload limit for you, most times they will (@ least syskay does! )
remember to copy your uploads folder through ftp or cpanel to ensure your attachments such as pictures would still exist in your new installation, to do this, access wp-content/uploads/, copy the whole upload folder (very important).
