I am using another VPS provider with 10+ domains, mainly running WordPress. What’s your strategy of moving 10+ WordPress sites to DO?

@daniel: We have an article on migrating to DigitalOcean from a different VPS provider: <br> <br>https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/migrate-your-current-vps-linode-rackspace-aws-ec2-to-digitalocean <br> <br>Please let me know if that helps.

If you use webmin, I believe it has a backup/restore feature that you can use. <br>Otherwise you can connect using SCP and just transfer all the files/folders over. <br>Most of the VPS provider give you that support…as vpswebserver.com, seo host etc company offering…you should ask then first and the process is also not very complicated rather than using backup protocol and transfer using filezilla and some other software that available in market

Please, anyone has a tutorial in form of a video to help a newbie go through this process? I think video tutorial could better help because I have up to 10 sites as well on HostGator’s Seohosting.com site and would love to move them here but I do not know how. This is my first time of trying cloud hosting feature. Thanks as I expect your responses <br> <br>Dan
