Use this tutorial to install wordpress
After getting the Wordpress successfully setup, I have uploaded a theme to /tmp/wordpress/wp-content/themes. However, the uploaded theme does not show up in my Wordpress.
Desperately trying different methods, I accidentally entered sudo cp -a /tmp/wordpress/. /var/www/html again in the command list. Afterwards the website is down, and will show Error establishing a database connection & HTTP 500 Error. The condition remains the same after switching off and on the server again.
Is there anyway to solve the problem? I didn't backup and don't want to setup everything again...
Server was single install wordpress. I have installed a second wordpress site on the same apache server.
I have purchased an ssl certificate from namecheap.com
I follow their instructions to the t along with the suggestions on the tutorials here on how to create your own certificate and configs etc... but it seems to crash apache and the namecheap website doesn't accept the ssl.
Is there a tutorial or advice that I can follow to solve this problem?
Previously, I needed a server for two websites, so I bought a larger droplet. I created both Wordpress sites using Serverpilot. Now I only need one website and I don't want to pay for a larger droplet. I have already deleted one of the sites, but now I'm not sure what is the best way to transfer the other. I still want to use Serverpilot afterwards.
When viewing the System Status of WooCommerce on my WordPress install, I noticed this message: "SoapClient: Your server does not have the SoapClient class enabled - some gateway plugins which use SOAP may not work as expected."
So I went ahead and figured out how to install the SoapClient here: [Does Digitalocean support SOAP class?](https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/does-digitalocean-support-soap-class)
After installing it, I refreshed the System Status page and the message was the same.
Is there a way to enable this? I feel like that step still needs to be completed, just not sure how.
