    Hello there,

    i’ve used this plugin before and after a few minor startup-problems it worked great!
    Thanks again for the support then!
    I now am trying to migrate to a different location/host.
    iv’e backedup on the original location, but when i try to restore on my new server i get
    this message:
    The plugin encountered an error while downloading the zip file,the following error message was returned:
    Error Message : socket error: 111

    Temporary files created in /home/vhosts/domain/httpdocs/wp-content/wpclone-tempwill be deleted.

    Do you have any thoughts on how to fix this and get it working? Hope to hear from you soon, looking forward to your response and hope you can help me with a solution.

    Thanks in advance!
