Copying Wordpress to a new droplet
I currently have a test droplet where I installed LEMP + Wordpress.org to build a website. My domain name is also pointing to this droplet.
I also have other test projects on this droplet.
Once I get the Wordpress website working correctly I would like to setup a dedicated droplet for it. I plan to install the Wordpress marketplace app on this new droplet and I see that there are detailed instructions on pointing my domain to it and getting the HTTPS certificate.
Once I setup the new droplet how do I copy my Wordpress site to it? There was a question on this forum from 2014 about that but the details are unclear to me. The person posting the question said that they created an image and then created a new droplet from that image. But I’m not sure if that will apply in my case because I just want to copy the WP site and content to the new droplet, not the entire droplet.
