Migrating database to DigitalOcean using BackupBuddy

I am in the process of migrating my WordPress site from shared hosting to DigitalOcean. I set up a fresh install of WordPress using one-click installation, and I replaced the standard wp-content folder with my original folder. I am trying to migrate my database over using BackupBuddy, but I am getting an error when I try to access the importbuddy.php file.

This is the error that I am getting: Error #224834. This directory is not write enabled. Please verify write permissions to continue.

Any ideas? I’m sure I am just overlooking something simple.
