      Now suppose that you've gone home and want to import the file into
      your home Zope server.  First, you must copy the export file into
      Zope's *import* directory on your server.  Now, go to the
      *Import/Export* view of the folder where you want perform the
      import. Enter the name of the export file in the *Import file
      name* form element and click *Import* to import those objects into

         Considering of adding a browse/upload function?

         When I do this, I get the following errors:

         Error Type: Bad Request
         Error Value: File does not exist: basic-0.9.5.zexp

         I created a root-level folder called "import". I then added a File type object from my local filesystem into
         the import folder, and set the id to the same name as the filename.
         As far as I can tell I have followed all the rules completely - any thoughts?

         You need to create the import folder in the local file system (the directory where you installed Zope) and
         copy the file you want import there.

         Can't I import files remotely? What do I do if I can not access the machine Zope is running on? c&p in the
         text area?
