Question

Has anyone successfully rolled over an existing Wordpress configuration?

I have the Ubuntu 12.04 x32 setup, and my developer is having a lot of issues rolling over our existing Wordpress website. It looks like the issue is with the configuration of our droplet’s webserver, we just can’t figure out what we’re doing wrong. This is frustrating enough to the point where I am considering switching to a provider that offers managed hosting.

If you have encountered issues rolling over an existing WP, or have successfully done so, then I would appreciate if you could shed some light on what we may be doing wrong.

@dede, <br> <br>I’ve transferred 5 WP sites over to DO, from other providers. <br> <br>How many WP installs are you trying to transfer? <br>Single-site or multisite? <br>What seems to be the problem? <br>Where are you getting stuck?

Need some more information, like what’s your server software stack? Apache, MySQL, PHP, or are you using a cache? I’ve pulled two wordpress installs over from another ISP no problem just copying the files and the database.
