Can't get ManageWP or BackupBuddy working to migrate off Digital Ocean VPS

January 24, 2014 1.2k views
I have a Digital Ocean Ubuntu 12.0.4 VPS that I am trying to migrate a Wordpress installation off of using ManageWP or BackupBuddy. All settings are pretty much default on the apache side of things. ManageWP says it can't get a backup. Working through the settings to check. I have memory limits set to 512MB currently. "safe_mode" is off in php.ini. I am thinking the issue is around access to "mysqldump" and the php exec function. I am pretty sure these are enabled for the root user, but what user level is Wordpress functioning with? BackupBuddy installs but when I initiate a backup it just gives a blank screen on the Dashboard. I have been looking through the apache error logs and don't see anything in regards to this. Are there any other error logs I should check? Sorry for the noob questions. I just really need to get this site off the VPS.
