Make a duplicated version of your remote public directly and store it some where locally, back up any databases and generate a .sql file which can be later imported to the new server. Upload all the old public remote directory from your local storage to the new droplet public directory. If you're using a vps, things get a little more complex if you're wanting a exact duplicate. I suggest you have a look at https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/migrate-your-current-vps-linode-rackspace-aws-ec2-to-digitalocean it may help you.

This tutorial covers how to migrate your data and website off of a different VPS provider to DigitalOcean. The basic procedures are the same regardless of where you are migrating from. We discuss some strategies for maintaining data integrity and creating a similar operating environment on a new VPS instance.
Hi, Are you currently using vps or shared hosting?
