Cannot open file

I exported an XML file from Wordpress and uploaded it to my server.

Using the Wordpress datatype, I provided the URL to the file but get an error that the file cannot be opened.

If I copy the URL that Datagrab shows for the file that can’t be opened and paste it into the browser, the XML file loads just fine.

Running EE v4.2.1 with Datagrab 3.0.3.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks for your post.

There can be a number of reasons why a file cannot be read.

Would it be possible to email me the file for me to test (

Another option is, if you are trying to read the file using a url (eg, http:...), then copy the file to you site’s home directory and just use the filename.
