How do I migrate an existing site?
I have an existing Wordpress site hosted at InMotion and I’d like to switch hosting over to Digital Ocean.
I created a Wordpress droplet and followed these instructions:
I’ve managed to log into the server via SSH using root@useyourdroplet_ip
It says an interactive script will run, but I am not seeing that. I just get a command prompt and I can navigate around the server.
How do I trigger the interactive script?
Also, once I can get the setup script to run, should I still enter my domain name and proceed to Let’s Encrypt setup per the rest of the instruction, given I am migrating an existing blog that is already live at that URL? (I want to migrate the site and test it on DO before switching DNS over.) Maybe that can be done by adding a row to my hosts file.
