Hi @bobbyiliev, Worked arround it as following perhaps handy for others which are facing the same problem:

  1. Created a droplet form market place with Wordpress and OpenLightSpeed
  2. Followed this documentation:

‘‘Methods for Migrating Wordpress’’

and installed: Duplicator Plugin pro on both live and staging environments.

Hi Bobby,

I setup an droplet with OpenLiteSpeed Wordpress on Ubuntu. I am not using Docker. Terminal says the following when using command:
Command docker not found, but can be installed with:

$ docker ps -a

Basically my idea was to:

  1. Power off Droplet A
  2. Create a snapshot of Droplet A
  3. Create Droplet B and chose image droplet A from images section.

But when entering the IP it doent load. Perhaps Im missing something.

Hi there @snoibal,

I would recommend checking your logs for some more information. It would depend on what webserver you are using, is it Apache or Nginx for your webserver?

Can you share a bit more information on your current setup like:

  • What is the Linux distribution that you are using?
  • Are you using any frameworks like Laravel or any other?
  • Are you using Docker? If this is the case make sure that the docker containers are actually up and running, you can do that with this command:
  1. docker ps -a

Regards, Bobby
