Wordpress Dashboard not working properly. Whenever I try to open any feature (posts, plugins page) it results in nginx 404 page?
I have a 5$ droplet running wordpress on LEMP. I have logged into this website almost after 2 years (it has quite a lot of content on it)… I need to move it to a different droplet now with more automation (easy engine) and wanted a WXR file (wordpress export) for importing stuff to the new website. However on loggin in I found out that major buttons (like export, plugins, comments etc) result in an nginx 404 page (they simply wont open).
Now I can not actually take a back up of the database and wp-content folder because all of that is now filled with old and clogging stuff that I want to get rid of. I will do a fresh install and just need the wxr file. Any workaround to this?
