August 2, 2014 4.7k views

Guys, i’m moving a web site from other host to DC, and i having a problem to import my current Wordpress SEO by Yoast Settings file, basically every time i try to import the file i get the error:

Settings could not be imported: Unzipping failed with error “Could not create directory.

I was having problems to upload images to my Wordpress installation, and thoose problems were solved by following Kamal Nasser, answer here.

I tried to do the same with the Wp-content/plugins folder, but i’m still getting this error, does anyone know what could a possible do?

The file contain more than 900 posts description, if i have to copy that manually, it will be a pain…

Thanks!

I am facing the same problem when I try to import the settings.zip file into Wordpress SEO by Yoast.

Settings could not be imported: Unzipping failed with error “Could not create directory.”.

Let me know if anyone have faced the issue and solved it.

Just add this line in your wp-config.php:

define( 'FS_METHOD', 'direct' ); 
  • Could not copy file. wordpress-seo/admin/config-ui/factories/class-factory-post-type.php
    this is the new error that came after adding this code
