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!


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.
