Question

I'm having an issue with a migration from Magento to Shopify.

It is installed directly onto a digital ocean server (which I know nothing about) and I need to access the root folder but there’s no cpanel installed, only the server. So I need someone to install cpanel for me, but would this disrupt the current database?

Accepted Answer

Yes it will. Most control panel software requires installation on a clean unmodified operating system in order to be installed and work properly.

All droplets on DigitalOcean have SSH and SFTP access by default. You can use a client like Filezilla to connect to your droplet and browse/upload/download your files. To do so you will set up a new connection as follows:

Host: [Your Droplet’s IP address or domain/subdomain] Port: 22 Protocol: SFTP Logon Type: Normal User: root Password: [your droplet’s root password]

One control panel that can be installed on your system without starting over would be Webmin. This is a fairly basic control panel designed more to ease the work of sysadmins than to create a user-friendly portal for end users but it will likely do much of what you need as it includes MySQL and Apache configuration tools as well as a file manager.
