Hi there,

One option here would be to create a new WordPress Droplet using the 1-Click installation here:

https://marketplace.digitalocean.com/apps/wordpress

Then you could use the Duplicator plugin which allows you to create an export of your existing website, and then import that exported archive to the newly created WordPress installation on the DigitalOcean side.

Alternatively, if you have to move some of the data manually you can do that via ssh using scp or rsync. Another option is to use an FTP client like FileZilla:

Hope that this helps!

Let me know if you have any questions!

Best,

Bobby

I am in the process of migrating a WordPress website from InMotion Hosting to DigitalOcean. I am documenting my experience at https://jaimemontoya.com/blog/2023/12/10/05/59/.
