Question

I transferred my WordPress website from shared hosting to DO. Now I am not able to upload images and file in the website.

I have tried changing permissions of the uploads folder. I also tried increasing memory limit in the .htaccess file. Nothing has worked for me. The website was working fine before i transferred the website from shared hosting in Namecheap.

Hello, @aadityabhatta

I would recommend following the steps here on how to migrate a Wordpress website to a DigitalOcean droplet with no downtime:

Additionally you can check all the steps and the prerequisites in the How To Install Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP (LAMP) stack on Ubuntu article here as well:

Hope that this helps! Regards, Alex

Hey friend!

Try this command over console or SSH, and see if it helps:

chown -R www-data. /var/www
