  • Do you know how your site got infected? Knowing that and preventing that from happening again would be a start. Otherwise, prepare to abandon ship and bring up a new droplet with more stringent security precautions before transferring your website piecemeal.

  • @gndo is correct. Unfortunately once you've been compromised your best option is to start clean. Trying to manually clean up after a compromise would likely take 10x as much time with no guarantee it would be successful.

    You should be able to export a backup of your db (check it for anything that does not belong) and your wp-content/uploads folder if you have media there and import it into a new instance of WordPress
