Moving a running site from Acquia to Digital Ocean
I have a running website on Acquia Cloud that has Drupal 7 (on PHP 5.3) at it’s backend. It has dev, test and production(live) environments supported with centralized SVN as well and ofcourse unique databases for each environment. SVN branches (managed on acquia end) can easily be deployed on each of the environments with a single click.
I also need cron and email sending feature from the hosting and the site also uses SMS generation (external - not on acquia).
I need to know how easy it is for me to move my site to DigitalOcean and what steps exactly should I be following for this migration including moving the current DNS from acquia to DigitalOcean.
I am planning to subscribe to your $ 80 / month (8GB Memory , 4 Core Processor , 80GB SSD Disk , 5TB Transfer) package.
