SLP 4.9 with the Power add-on now uses the built-in file uploader provided by WordPress Core instead of a custom file import script. If you were able to import and now do not see that process working, look in the Media Library in WordPress. Make sure your install has not disabled the default WordPress media uploader.
What to look for when importing
Do you see the CSV file you just imported? If not then your site has disabled the WordPress media uploader.
If your file IS in the media library but never gets past the offset “0” setting check to make sure your server has not disabled the WordPress Cron .
Check to see if your server is preventing the wp-cron.php from being triggered.
Check your import file in the media library by clicking on it. It should show what the file size is and the current offset. The offset is where the background process is shown while importing the file. If it is shown as “zero” then your WordPress Uploads directory for the media library has been set to non-standard restricted access meaning the background location import process is not allowed to open the file after it was uploaded.
Some clients have datasets of 200,000 locations, none of which include latitude/longitude coordinates, only U.S. street addresses. Often customers want to know import limitations to including Google’s limit of 2,500 daily requests.
In order to perform bulk location imports with a CSV file you will need to the Power add-on installed. The following constraints can keep the locations from loading or cause slower processing.
