Hey guys, I manage a small marketing agency and we currently have eleven Wordpress installs on seven separate domains which we manage for ourselves and for clients. At the moment we are using Reseller Hosting but we are outgrowing their shared system and we are looking to move up to a cloud VPS environment.
I have been using computers since 1985 but I am not a computer expert when it comes to stuff like Linux, Nginx, etc and I can only vaguely remember the good old days of CLI. What I was looking for was some (preferably simple) advice on what sort of setup I would need to run Wordpress sites efficiently on DO. We use ManageWP to manage and maintain the sites, so the setup would need to conform to their specifications.
Secondly, what would be the most efficient and safe way to migrate all of the sites over to the VPS droplet? I can backup the sites through ManageWP, and also through the Cpanel backup system, but would that help at DO’s end?
Thanks for taking the time to read this, and any help would be greatly appreciated!
