I installed wordpress in Ubuntu server with the help of the article provided here. It was successful and I could access new wordpress site through my provided ip address (http://188.8.131.52/).
My main motive was to transfer my existing wordpress site to DO.
After succesful installation of wordpress site, I transferred wp-content and sql file as illustrated in the article: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-migrate-wordpress-from-shared-hosting-to-a-cloud-server-with-zero-downtime
I could see the old tables(with different prefix) to the database I created while installing wp site in phpmyadmin.
I deleted the default tables with wp_ prefix and changed the prefix setting in wp-config.php coz my database is now using different prefix.
But now I cannot access the site. It says: Server Error.
Where did I do wrong? Any suggestions....
Thanks in advanced.
