Google Search Console, Ownership verification failing


Staff member
I am trying to add/verify a wordpress site that I am managing (Through HTML file, HTML tag and Google Analytics) but I keep getting the error below:
<strong>Ownership verification failed</strong><br />
<strong>Verification method: HTML file</strong><br />
<strong>Failure reason: The connection to your server timed out.</strong>
Any Idea how I can resolve this?
