Question

Posts not accessible in ported/migrated Wordpress site

I was loosely following this tutorial to move my existing wordpress site (although what I ended up doing was just created a normal Ubuntu droplet and manually installing each package):

https://devopscube.com/migrate-wordpress-site-digital-ocean-cloud-server/

Although by the end of it i realized that my blog kept pointing to my original one, so i followed this bit here to force my ported version on Digital Ocean to actually utilize its local files: https://wordpress.org/support/article/changing-the-site-url/#edit-functions-php

And I got as far as getting this far: http://104.236.73.128/blog/

But now if i try to access any of the existing posts it comes up blank. What could I be missing here…?

Hi @ktonegawa,

I can see I’m able to access the website using http://104.236.73.128/blog/ and clicking the blog posts is possible, good job!

Can you share what was the issue you experienced in case someone else finds this question and would find it helpful?
