Hello, @jy313

You can use the WP All in One plugin to migrate all of your WordPress websites. However, if you have sites or any other applications that are not based on WordPress you’ll need to move them either manually or use a tool provided by the app’s developers.

If you have to move some of the data manually you can do that via ssh using scp or rsync. Another option is to use an FTP client like FileZilla

Hello

When talking about migrations, before you start migrating your websites you’ll need to configure everything else.

General

We have a series of tutorials that cover the process of migrating from one Linux server to another which you can check here:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorial_series/how-to-migrate-to-a-new-linux-server

In general, depending on your site/application you will need to spin up a droplet that matches your current hosting provider environment or at least is suitable for your app/site needs (e.g running the same PHP version). Then you need to migrate your data (files, users, database and etc).

LAMP/LEMP setup

You can follow this tutorial for a LEMP setup: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-linux-nginx-mysql-php-lemp-stack-on-ubuntu-22-04

You can follow this tutorial for a LAMP setup: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-linux-apache-mysql-php-lamp-stack-on-ubuntu-22-04

CMS(WordPress)

Additionally, if you are using WordPress as a CMS, you can use the WP All in One plugin or Duplicator to migrate all of your WordPress websites.

You’ll still need to follow the LEMP or LAMP stack tutorials before starting with WordPress

Direct Transfer

If you have to move some of the data manually you can do that via ssh using scp or rsync. Another option is to use an FTP client like FileZilla

MarketPlace

Lastly, you can check the Marketplace

For any preprepared Droplets that might be of help for you

Hope this helps!
