Question

Can I migrate wordpress website without cpanel

I have a blog [ [speedraftaar.com ] in Namecheap. Due to high traffic, I want to migrate my website to digital ocean cloud hosting. Currently, my website is hosted at Linux dedicated server. I want to run my website in the digital ocean with SSL. Is this possible without having cpanel to migrate my website to a digital ocean? Also, at some particular time, my site will get huge traffic, so how to load the balance, Please anyone suggest to me how to upgrade and downgrade plans in digital ocean. Thanks

Hello there,

We do have an article that covers the process, although it is with deprecated status, however, you can check it here:

You can use the WP All in One plugin or Duplicator to migrate all of your WordPress websites.

If you have to move some of the data manually you can do that via ssh using scp or rsync. Another option is to use an FTP client like FileZilla

Hope that this helps!

@maqbul233,

Basically migrate just like @alexdo mentioned above. More info, check docs here

I would suggest you to setup the openlitespeed wordpress droplet, copy your site to the droplet and do some benchmark first. Basically page with LiteSpeed cache should be able to handle high traffic with no issue.

Best

Even if we upgrade ram and cpu then also we cant downgrade?. I did not understand what is “HA Configuration”. is this possible with HA Configuration by creating a new droplet.

Hello, @maqbul233

Yes, you can always migrate your site using FTP with FileZilla or via the command line using rsync or scp to copy the files over to your Digital Ocean droplet. You will also need to export the database and import it on Digital Ocean’s server as well (in case your site is using database).

Let me know if you have any questions regarding the process.
