Migration from Siteground

July 6, 2013 3k views
Hi, Could someone tell me like a four year old, the steps I need to proceed through in order to bring my site (Joomla 2.5) to your services at Digital Ocean. I currently have a VPS, and would purchase a VPS from Digital Ocean. The current PHP I would need installed on the VPS, the MYSQL I dunno about. I want this to be an error free migration thereafter. So I would like some experts to engage here. Thankyou, William

I believe everything there is to migrating a site is:

- Dumping the mysql database and importing it.

- Install LAMP/LEMP stack on the new

- Make sure everything is working properly and configure the DNS records to point to the new VPS.

LAMP stack is a group of open source software used to get web servers up and running. The acronym stands for Linux, Apache ( the web server) , MySQL (the database), and PHP (the language). This tutorial is written for Centos.
