I was trying to pre-stage some stuff before taking my WordPress droplet live tonight, and I ran across a bug in the /opt/digitalocean/wp_setup.sh script. The documentation says that if you aren’t ready to set up your site yet you can just hit Control-C and the script will run next login. Well… kinda…
The following lines are executed before the user has an opportunity to hit Control-C:
# Enable WordPress on firstlogin mv /var/www/html /var/www/html.old mv /var/www/wordpress /var/www/html
Well, when you log in a second time, these statements get executed again and the WordPress content ends up in /var/www/html.old/html
The workaround is:
mv /var/www/html.old/html /var/www/wordpress mv /var/www/html.old /var/www/html
The fix would be to move these two lines later in the script, or to add some conditional logic to prevent them from being executed twice.
