We are in the process of setting webwork 2.1 up on a new server, and would like to move our Fall courses over from the old webwork 2.0 server. I tried to export a course from the old server and import it into a course on the newserver, but received this error during the import:

An error occured while importing the database of course test2gdbm:

* Failed to parse XML document: not well-formed (invalid token) at line 1, column 5, byte 5 at /usr/lib/perl5/XML/ line 187

(1) One question is whether a the best way to move the courses over is through the export/import feature?

(2) Will there be problem with importing a gdbm course into a sql_single course?

(3) My plan is to try to avoid the above error by upgrading the old server to 2.1 then exporting, followed by import to the new 2.1 server. Will this work?

Thanks, Lars.
