So I'm transitioning a site to a new server and doing a redesign. I used the wp cli tool to export from the old site and import into the new. For some reason, a lot of the images failed to import, as well as posts missing categories/tags. The old site was hosted on GoDaddy and using Wordpress 5.0.3

I've already copied over the whole uploads directory. My main concern is the attachment data. All the posts were built with a layout builder, so instead of having to go add each image to every post, I planned to write a script to scrape the post_content and add the attachment into an ACF or WPBakery. Right now, most of the images are missing from the database.

I've already tried an attachment only export/import with the CLI tool, but it failed as well. This is what most of the images say.
