Although One Click Import is a quite versatile plugin, you might encounter errors, usually caused by your server configuration. Make sure to check this article here on identifying these errors and resolve them with your Hosting Provider. As a general note, this plugin requires PHP version of at least 5.3.x, but we recommend version 5.6.x or better yet 7.x.
Please contact your hosting company and ask them to update the PHP version for your site.
