Go to your joomla's global config -> server -> error reporting. Set it to none. Try to migrate again. Does it complete then?

Thanks - tried that and its the same.
I didnt re export the DB from WP though, i just tried it again. If it goes wrong should you start everything again ?

Would you please start a private ticket and give me a copy of your WP database for testing?
thanks,
Daniel

It took me some time to figure that thing out... You have 64 categories and some of them have the same titles -> this leads to the same aliases... And when we reoder the joomla save method complains that the cats have the same aliases.

I fixed this and the import should work for you as expected now. Test the latest dev. release:
compojoom.com/component/ars/repository/dev-cmigrator/gitd3bb6e8

Cheers,
Daniel
