Copying Wordpress Droplet

  • Posted on December 5, 2014

I would like to make a copy of my wordpress site in a new droplet. I created an image and then created a new droplet from that image but when I navigate to that IP address it just says that “This website is not available”. Do I need to do something with the LAMP setup if I made a direct copy. I realize that need to direct my domain to the site but I seem to remember that at least the homepage usually works without that. I am scared of directing my domain towards the server without being able to test if it works. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There should not be any more to do but it sounds like Apache may not have started properly on boot. I would recommend logging into your droplet and attempting to restart the service:

sudo service apache2 restart

If the service fails to start or you are still unable to reach the page in a browser by using the IP address you should check the apache error log file in /var/log/apache2/
