Hello all. I’m new to Digital Ocean. I am trying to deploy my React APP in my server alongside with an WordPress Installation.

My APP is working fine at this moment but my current Wordpress installation is on another server and I want to migrate it to my digital ocean droplet.

Any hints or tutorials?

Best Regards
