I just migrated my Wordpress blog from Godaddy to DO and so far I am amazed to see the performance and kicking myself for not doing it so long. But, it is never too late :) … Well, I have moved the entire website now to my droplet and everything works fine for me.
However, I had a phpBB forum running on my site which does not work anymore after migration. The phpbb installation was in a sub folder of my domain and accessible via sub folder URL. Like www.exampleblog.com/forums
My web root, www.exampleblog.com had the wordpress installed which I have been able to successfull migrate. However, I copied the database of forum and files as well to the same path on my droplet but when I try to open www.exampleblog.com/forums, I get 500 Internal Server error.
I believe I am missing some Apache configuration and have not setup any site as I do not know what I have to do to make it work. I have only made config settings for Apache to serve from Varnish cache and have not done anything for this sub-folder where Phpbb is present
Can anyone please help?
