    Error Message : couldn't connect to host

    This is what I get when I try to restore a WP from url. Although I can easily access the zip file generated by a plugin at my other site. Any suggestions?

    Problem solved.

    Now I have another problem.

    I am using Microsoft Webmatrix. So, I am using localhost. After cloning my site docs.codenvy.com to my localhost site I cannot login to it because it the login page redirects me to docs.codenvy.com login page. So, instead of http://localhost:24752/wp-admin I am redirected in the browser to docs.codenvy.com/wp-admin

    I can't fix permalinks since I can even access the right dashboard.

    Any suggestions how this can be fixed?

    Hi There. How did you fix the 'Error Message : couldn't connect to host' problem please? I'm having the same issue.

    okay if the restored site is re-directing to the original site,that probably means that the database search and replace failed.
    download this and follow the instructions (we use the same thing in the plugin)

    @8persap always make sure that the link works. if you're moving a local site onto a live server,you'll have to upload the zip file to an online server first.
