Why I get this error when I try to migrate my website: “Could not find file for testing MySQL Connection. Please check “New URL” and “Root folder path of site”

Trying to migrate site from Xampp to web with your plugin Duplicator / Cloner / Migrator and get the following error: “Could not find file for testing MySQL Connection. Please check “New URL” and “Root folder path of site”. What does it mean and how to make the plugin work?

We’d recommend you to check your |”Root folder…”. You can check it in your FTP with the help of any File Manager. After our plugin check, in this folder there should be file “sd_installer.php”. If you have this file in your website root folder, then the folder was set correctly.

Then try to call this file manually. Open this address in browser http://site_address/sd_insstaller.php and there should open empty page. If page 404 was opened, then the file “sd_installer.php” is not located in the root folder. If you see another error it means that php on your server (for example, does not launch the script where set the rights 0666).

If empty page was opened empty page, then the file is located in the right place and works. It this way it means that mysql settings are wrong.
