Trying to migrate site with importbuddy: 404 on

LAMP Stack

So, I have followed the steps in this answer

I have a LAMP droplet
Installed Apache, MySQL and PHP
Created /root/var/www/html, set permissions to 777
Moved the archive and backupbuddy to the /root/var/www/html
when i try to access the script via I see nothing
Funnily enough, when I tried the same with a WP droplet, I could at least access the script

Could you please help me find what I’m missing here?

Apache’s default document root is /var/www/html, not /root/var/www/html. If you move the files there, Apache will be able to serve them and browsing to should then work.

sudo mv /root/var/www/html/* /root/var/www/html/.* /var/www/html
