How to migrate my site from ClouWays to DigitalOcean

January 25, 2016 639 views
LAMP Stack WordPress

CloudWays is using Apache+NginX+APC+Memcached+Varnish so I am worrying about compatibility
I want to migrate my site on Digital Ocean server with LAMP stack.
And one more question my blog gets about 5000 Uniques a day with max 6-7K pageviews my page size Avg is 700KB and I also want to enable CloudFlare so what should I choose as a web server
Nginx Or Apache
is Apache+FastCGI enough?

  • Hi Garv,

    If you don't want to use Varnish or Memcached on Cloudways then you can simply turn them off. But we recommend you keep them on. If you are using WordPress then there is nothing to worry about.

    Just use Cloudways' recommended setting for Varnish. For Memcached you don't need to tweak anything, same goes for Apache and Nginx.

    You can also add Cloudflare easily while on Cloudways using DigitalOcean. I recently wrote about adding Cloudflare to WP sites here: http://www.cloudways.com/blog/how-to-install-cloudflare-cdn-wordpress/

    If you run into problems then you can always contact our 24/7 live chat support.
