WP_content & multiple WP installs

  • Posted July 3, 2014

Hey everyone,

I’m trying to migrate a couple of Wordpress sites to DigitalOcean. Setting up the multiple databases wasn’t a problem.

I used this tutorial:

Unfortunately, this tutorial is only focussed on a single WP installation. The scp upload thingy also didn’t work out. So I installed Wordpress via the normal installer, imported the .xml file so I’ve got all my articles back.

Then I installed myPHPadmin to import the database. I used an SFTP client to upload the WP_content folder to my droplet. Unfortunately, that doesn’t work. I use a non-standard port, and Wordpress says “Apache/2.4.7 (Ubuntu) Server at Port 80”, could that be the problem?

  1. Can I fix this with SFTP?
  2. Is this a good method for multiple WP installations?
  3. Did I mess up, should I start all over again and follow the tutorial exactly?

Thanks guys.

Can you provide us more context of your apache configuration? Also, a pastebin of the actual config would go a long way in helping us see what is going on. You can run as many installs as the machine will support, it all boils down to the appropriate settings in Apache/Nginx.
