importing from blogger - not connecting (3 posts)

    I've just set up a blog using wordpress 2.2 and I'm trying to import my blogger blog, but when I go to allow access to the blog I get the followign error message:

    Could not connect to https://www.google.com
    There was a problem opening a secure connection to Google. This is what went wrong:

    The operation completed successfully.

    instead of being directed back to the wordpress import page. Can anyone help please?

    - Get with your host and make sure that they have SSL support for outbound connections on their box.

    - Turn off all plugins before starting the import. (especially the Google sitemap if you have it in there ;)

    Gotta admit that this is a very much discussed topic around here. Just dropping in the error into Google pulls up a number of threads on the topic. May want to look at them if those two suggestions don't pan out.

    Good luck,

    SSL is turning out to be an issue with some hosts, that's for sure.
