Trying to Migrate a site from Cloudways + Vultr to Vultr + Cyberpanel

Can you please tell me that what changes do I have to make to my existing .tgz backup file that cloudways has given me to make it work with the Vultr + Cyberpanel.

Welcome @kiltzone66058 Happy you are here

Assuming this compressed package contains only website files you can just upload the package to a CyberPanel filemanager for your website on cyberpanel. Click on Fix Permissions and see the results when you visit the domain.

  1. Log into admin panel http://SERVER_URL:8090

  2. On sidebar click websites → List websites (http://SERVER_URL:8090/websites/listWebsites)

  3. On the domain you want to manage website for click Manage

  4. On https://SERVER_URL/websites/ (change to whichever website you created) and click on File Manager on the list you see

  5. In File Manager click on Fix Permissions

No it will not you will have to do the following steps:

  1. Go to https://SERVER_URL:8090/dataBases/createDatabase

  2. Choose your website and create a database by adding a database name, username and password

Note these credentials down as these are the credentials you will add to your wp-config.php. Ask cloudways for your old website database export you will need to import it into your new database.

  1. Go to https://SERVER_URL:8090/phpmyadmin

  2. Pick your new database

  3. Click on Import

do you see a .sql.gz or .sql anywhere in compressed backup

yes, there is a .sql file in the backup

When you click import choose that file

do you mean while importing the database? and then I also have to made changes to the config.php as well right?

First update wp-config.php then import the database file. How big is the file?

the whole backup is 1.2 gb

I did those changes but the site is loading has a mobile version and only the homepage is working. Followed the all steps correctly.

All the other pages are giving 404 errors and this is how the site looks on desktop. the homepage which is only working

Did you increase the upload limit for php? that is really big 4 - Change Upload Limit for phpMyAdmin

Yes I have

Found your site you will need to log into it and change permalinks

Also check .htaccess for errors. Replace all the contents with a clean wordpress default version
