Support » Fixing WordPress » Error trying to import blogger blog

  • I have installed (manually) the latest version of wordpress on my hosting site, earthlink. I am in the process of converting my old blog into wordpress as it was blogger FTP which Google is not supporting after May day. And I like wordpress’ features.

    At anyrate, I got this error when trying to import my blogger blog:

    Could not connect to

    There was a problem opening a secure connection to Google. This is what went wrong:

    Unable to find the socket transport “ssl” – did you forget to enable it when you configured PHP? (26546168)
    Thank you for creating with WordPress. | Documentation | Feedback

    Version 2.9.2

    So how do I configure my php? I have indicated in my .htaccess file on my host what version of php to use, but I couldn’t find any way that I could configure it via .htaccess to use ssl. I suspect this may be something that Earthlink disallows or doesn’t do w/its apache or whatever.

    Any advice on what to do next would be appreciated.
