"I'm trying to import converted XML from my Wordpress blog to Blogger but keep getting a message that says
"Sorry, the import failed due to a server error. The error code is bX-p45270"
after a bit of uploading. Any advice would be super appreciated, as I didn't see this error code in your blog."
You are right that this particular bx error code hasn't been mentioned on this blog yet simply because I haven't encountered it yet but thank you for bringing it to my attention.
First off this could be one of the temporary bx error codes - meaning it might be one of the new ones so you might want to give it some time to see if the problem goes away.
If that doesn't work you can always report the bx error code to Blogger.com by clicking on the link that is provided on the side of this blog.
It has been my experience that the bx error codes that have to do with importing involve there being some kind of mistake in the coding of the blog template that you want to import. I have a blog called Different Blog Layouts where I try importing different blog templates that I like and I have encountered this kind of problem before. Sometimes I have been able to solve the problem by "tweaking" or messing with the coding myself and sometimes that will solve the problem so that may be something that you will want to try yourself.
A lot could depend upon where you got the template from. A lot of times the people who have created these blog templates will have a site where they talk about their blog templates and note any errors or problems that may happen when people try to use them - so if that is the case with you you can try and contact the person who created the template and ask about the problem(s) that you are having with it.

Hopefully you will re-read this blog post again because you may have to go into the coding of your blog and "tweak" it so that it adheres to the blogger.com template code guidelines.
I will admit that it is not an easy thing to do - going over coding - but it may be the only way to solve your problem.
