I am trying to migrate a Wordpress site from Siteground to DigitalOcean by following the steps in this tutorial https://www.tabbloidx.co/migrate-a-wordpress-site-to-digitalocean-from-shared-hosting/
In the tutorial, he is able to login to a temporary install of wordpress and then to import the actual wordpress site before making the nameservers point at DigitalOcean.
The problem that I am having is that on step 3 I am unable to login to the Fresh installation of Wordpress using the ip url in order to install the migration plugin. Instead, I get redirected to the live website.
Is it possible for me to import the website before I change the nameservers to point at DigitalOcean? Thanks.
