Wordpress broken after droplet transfer


I had a fully functioning wordpress droplet, after transferring the droplet to another account and deleting the site from the first, I replaced the old droplet ip with the new one in the database using the wp-cli tool.

The homepage openned but the wp-admin page broke saying there’s a critical error, and now even the homepage won’t show.

I tried disabling the plugins and themes and turning on debugging mode but there are no errors in the apache access, apache error, or debug logs.

Hi there @Shalashtein,

Can you share the exact critical error that you are seeing?

Also have you checked your database to make sure that the search and replace went through correctly?

Regards, Bobby
