I recently had a Worpress site migrated over to a Linode server and the migration broke the site. I need a WP expert to restore it all. Could be a simple PHP conflict (?)

Here are some steps that can be taken to resolve the issue:

  1. Check the error logs on the Linode server to see if any specific errors are being thrown that may indicate the cause of the issue.
  2. Verify that all the necessary dependencies such as PHP and MySQL are correctly installed and configured on the Linode server.
  3. Compare the server environment between the old server and the Linode server to ensure that all necessary settings are identical.
  4. Check the .htaccess file to see if any necessary rewrite rules were lost during the migration.
  5. Check the wp-config.php file to ensure that the database connection settings are correct.
  6. Check the PHP version of the Linode server, make sure it matches the PHP version of the previous server
  7. Try disabling all the plugins and switching to a default theme, this is to see if any of them are causing the issue.

If the problem persists, you may need to restore the site from a backup, or to rebuild the site completely.


Thank you for taking the time to reply in this manner. I see I may have a problem considering all the possibilities of errors that you have listed. May I ask, are you applying for to job?


Hi Harry, Does the website host only static content or it's an e-commerce website?


It only uses static content with inks to Pay Pal
