WordPress Migrator "Can not connect to SiteGround WP-migrator plugin at" error

This message shows when the SiteGround Migrator plugin cannot connect to the destination server properly.

If you see this error try to apply the following potential fixes:

  • Disable any security plugins like Wordfence on your website. Security plugins can block the SiteGround Migrator plugin from connecting remotely and disabling them should stop blocking the connection;
  • Make sure that the permissions of the wp-content/uploads folder are set to 755. SiteGround clients can reset their WordPress permissions from Site Tools > WordPress > Install & Manage. Choose the preferred installation and go to the kebab menu > Reset Permissions.
  • Remove any restrictive .htaccess rules or reset your website’s .htaccess file to a default WordPress one. SiteGround clients can use the File Manager tool in Site Tools to edit the file.
