Hi I have Issue transferring several websites from shared hosting. While transferring I used How to Set Up Multiple WordPress Sites on a Single Ubuntu VPS and How to Migrate WordPress from Shared Hosting to a Cloud Server with Zero Downtime tutorials(!). What I have to do is to transfer about 10 websites from shared hosting to digital ocean. At shared hosting I had 3 dbases:
The second website used arkbonline_tree database. I’ve restored the sql script to a new database with a different name - let’s call it tree_ocean. Created new SQL user for this new restored database. Then I set up all the virtual hosting stuff and uploaded contents of the wordpress website to digital ocean. After updating DNS the issue I face is that the website sends me to /wp-admin/install.php page. It does not display any error message. It simply thinks that it is clean installation of Wordpress. I’ve tried to reinstall it several times. But every time I get /wp-admin/install.php page. I didnt face this issue with the first WP website. What would you recommend me check?
