Hi @ragraggupta,

Before you start the migration you would need to create a Droplet with DigitalOean and install either LAMP or LEMP stack on it.

If you need to use Nginx, then LEMP stack it is. You can check the following article on how to achieve this:

If you are using LAMP stack, you can check the following:

After you’ve configured this, you are ready to go with the migration.

Once you have the droplet created, you will only need to copy your website’s files over to your new droplet with DigitalOcean.

As soon as the files are copied over change the DNS of your domain and you are good to go!

A "LAMP" stack is a group of open source software that is typically installed together to enable a server to host dynamic websites and web apps. This stack typically consists of the Linux operating system, the Apache web server, a MySQL database, and PHP, a dynamic content processor. This tutorial serves as a guide for installing these components on an Ubuntu 18.04 server.
