Question

Wordpress - Wordpress Seo by Yoast and Plugins permissions?

  • Posted August 2, 2014

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!
