so it appears to be getting to the files, its just not bringing them home. This happens for both "sockets" and "pure" ftp type's, but "php" ftp type actually manages to import the files if they are on the web server (so u can still manually import your stats), however u will see an error of "Unable to connect to server: No FTP support in this php build!" when it talks about trying to get the files automatically from the server. Idk what thats all about cause after creating an info.php script i can tell my web server does indeed have ftp enabled.
Obviously if no one is sure about my questions dont irritate yourself trying to figure it out if u dont want to, im mainly documenting as i go for those of us that got screwed and were forced to upgrade to php 7
