Hi @feedknock,

It seems like your port is already taken. Please type the following command

netstat -tulpen | grep 80

You’ll see what’s actually running on port 80. If’s not needed, you can actually kill it.

  • Now I installed with the digital ocean’s wordpress.

    But now one issue that I am not able to migrate with All-In-One-Migration plugin as its showing only 16MB file. I have 130MB file.

    Any idea on this?

    • Hi @feedknock,

      I would imagine you are comparing a .tar.gz files to the directory your website is located, correct?

      If that’s the case, .tar.gz files are actually compressed and that’s why they are smaller in size.
