Website Importer must allow FTPS connections
Let's face it, any host doing things right will have plain FTP disabled. Therefore the Website Importer will almost always fail. It absolutely has to be able to connect over FTPES/FTPS. Is this even on the roadmap? It's a great feature, if only it could work.
Thank you for your input. We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases if it is popular. Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.
If a source server only allows FTPS connections the Website Importer will not be able to connect via FTP to import a site's content. The Website Importer needs to support FTPS connections.
