I went through the process of setting up my Wordpress website using the official 18.04 wordpress image. I was able to log into my droplet which activated the script
It said “This setup requires a domain name. If you do not have one yet, you may cancel this setup, press Ctrl+C. This script will run again on your next login”
I skipped this and proceeded with the rest of my setup. Everything worked great and I was able to set an admin password and login to the http://my_website_name.com/wp-admin/install.php
I decided to login to my droplet via SSH today and I was prompted with the same script (/opt/digitalocean/wp_setup.sh) and I canceled it again. However, this time I noticed the following message:
mv: cannot stat '/var/www/html': No such file or directory
mv: cannot stat '/var/www/wordpress': No such file or directory
When I went to my website it was down and I can’t get it back up.
I tried restart apache but I believe that the script running a second time may have messed something up, particularly these lines in the script:
mv /var/www/html /var/www/html.old
mv /var/www/wordpress /var/www/html
