I'm not sure if this is the correct spot to to ask this but I'm hoping someone can help me out.
I'm migrating my WordPress site to a new domain/host using duplicator. I've done everything needed. Copied the public_html folder, uploaded the Archive and installer.php to their correct locations. . However whenever I try to create a new Database I receive:
Unable to read the database.sql file from the archive. Please check these items: 1. Validate permissions and/or group-owner rights on these items: - File: database.sql - Directory: [/home/njdab1982/public_html]
Their FAQ suggested a few things, and one was to Temporarily change the permission level to 777 on public_html. No problem, did that.
The database still will not install. Another strange thing is the 777 permissions will only stick until I try to install the Database. Once I try to install the database, it fails and the folders permissions revert back to 755.
@DraastiK The fact that even if you change the perms from files it changed it back is the driver of your site is always been the DB. A huge possibility of misconfigured perms from database, I would recommend rewriting the perms from the database locally first, do not modify the perms if your done importing it,reason is it won't allow you remotely or on a shared server already. I am not used to configuring this locally I haven't tried it myself yet. but If MySQL this things here : https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/changing-mysql-user.html https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/privileges-provided.html Or contact Godaddy they have a premium support to have a group of developers sort it for you.
