Moving WordPress from Bluehost to Digital Ocean Ubuntu LEMP - need a little help...
OK..I started up an Ubuntu 14.04 server with LEMP, and I am trying to use Backupbuddy to move a site from Bluehost to Digital Ocean.
Then I [installed vsftpd] to enable FTP access - but it is just using root. Should I create a different account for vsftpd access?
Also, I was able to follow most of the instructions on How To Install WordPress with Nginx on Ubuntu 14.04 - but I skipped steps 2-4 because I would be using Backupbuddy to replace the files and database tables when I ran importbuddy.
I uploaded my Backupbuddy ZIP file and importbuddy.php to the /var/www/html root folder, but when I tried to run importbuddy.php on my new install I got “Error #224834. This directory,
/var/www/html/, is not write enabled according to the server. Please verify proper write permissions to continue. If this persists, contact your web hosting provider and tell them that is_writable(”/var/www/html/“) returns FALSE in PHP.”
I am not sure how to proceed. Can you make the /var/www/html folder wite enabled and then revert to it’s current permissions? How would I find the current permissions?
Am I even going about this right? Is there a better way to do this move from Bluehost to Digital Ocean?
And what about the root leaving the “Welcome to nginx” page in there? Can I remove it?
Thanks for your help!
