    Which exact error message did you get?

    [fgj2wp] Couldn’t connect to the Joomla database. Please check your parameters. And be sure the WordPress server can access the Joomla database.
    Table ‘the1408406250357.jos_content’ doesn’t exist

    This message says that:
    – your MySQL login and password are correct
    – your database (the1408406250357) exists
    – but the prefix jos_ is incorrect.
    You have to check the Joomla table prefix and that you have Joomla data in the database the1408406250357.

    Joomla’s global configuration settings tell me the table prefix is hnmvp_ so when I put that in the plugin fields it still gives me the same error, only:

    [fgj2wp] Couldn’t connect to the Joomla database. Please check your parameters. And be sure the WordPress server can access the Joomla database.
    Table ‘the1408406250357.hnmvp_content’ doesn’t exist

    Is there any way to check the Joomla table prefix? Is that the only thing that’s throwing this migration off?

    Thank you for your help.

    Yes, you have to look at the database tables with phpMyAdmin.
    Or you can find the Joomla prefix in the Joomla file configuration.php.

    Nope, the prefix is correct. Anything else that might be causing it? I JUST realized that the database type was mysqli and I exported it to a .sql file – correct?

    Other than that, the URL I am using for the plugin is where the old site is still up and running – correct?

    hostname is the wordpress database host – correct?

    All seems correct. Can you check that you have a table named hnmvp_content in the the1408406250357 database? And is this table accessible by the user you filled in the plugin settings?

    “Can you check that you have a table named hnmvp_content in the the1408406250357 database? And is this table accessible by the user you filled in the plugin settings?”
