nstalled Vesta and it ruined everything

June 13, 2015 811 views
MySQL PHP WordPress LAMP Stack

So I installed Vesta, which of course broke everything. I had 4 sites and all 4 just disappeared.

After a bit I figured out that Vesta changes the root folder for all of my domains. I went ahead and reuploaded my sites to the new root folders.

Most of them now work, which is great.

Except for my Wordpress one.

So I moved my wordpress site from /var/www to /home/admin/web/torontoboozehound.com/public_html and when I load the readme.html it loads fine, but nothing else does. None of the php loads. when I try to load index.php it 404's but readme.html loads fine.

I go into Vesta and try to create a new data base and it says 'connection to localhost failed'

so what do I need to fix to get my site back up and running?

I have the mysql database from my old folder as a .sql file in the folder but the vesta main screen does NOT have it.

I might be looking at things completely wrong.

I know this isn't what you guys are supposed to help with, but I could REALLY use the help.

I am sorry but why ??

If you may please refer to the Vesta CP DOC,

The Vesta Control panel can be installed on a RHEL, CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu server. For a smooth installation you will need clean system "minimal install base". If installation fails you can force it using --force option. If you want to get full list of available options run installator with --help argument.

It clearly states that control panel should be installed in a clean droplet..

Beside, DO has snapshot option.. Specifically for these type situation.. So before you make any change to any of your production live server, take a snapshot.. In-case the planned modification goes wrong, simply restore the snapshot and start again..
