Migrate Wordpress Website onto Apache Server

I have a LAMP Wordpress droplet running on Ubuntu 18.04. I created parts of my website on Wordpress and later set up apache with SSL following the guides on the website. Now I just see the example text I entered in when I visit my website. I also can’t access wp-admin. How do I get my Wordpress stuff back on the apache HTTPS server?

I couldn’t find any other situations like mine on here or online. Thanks.

Can you please check the Apache configuration file and let ms know if you can see the virtual host of your WordPress site/installation in there? If the virtual host is missing you will need to create it so the WordPress site can be access in your browser.
