Note: to import and display the images from your old blog, you have to copy the images files to the Magento pub/media/magefan_blog directory.
For security concerns, databases are set up to only accept requests from the same server where they are requested, and they reject all requests from other servers.
Thus, in case you experience some issues while importing your blog, it's recommended to migrate your old blog's database to the same server where your Magento database is stored. Alternatively, you can adjust the database user rights and enable access from other servers by editing the old database settings.
