Question

Anyone having problems with WordPress .htaccess moving from MAMP to DigitalOcean?

I had a Wordpress Site setup using the latest version of Wordpress using MAMP. Just moved it to DigitalOcean and the site permalinks/URLs are all not working now. I haven’t changed anything except of course the database info in wp-config.php.

Are there any specific things to be aware of on DO VPS?
