I've been tasked with migrating a Wordpress site from a hosting company to Amazon Web Services. I'm pretty familiar with AWS, but Wordpress not so much (medium, lets say). This site is going to use the same domain name, but on a different server.
Today I build a LAMP stack from scratch and have successfully tested Apache, MySQL and PHP.
I have a compressed copy of the website along with the MySQL Database.
Can I just copy the contents of that zipped folder and MySQL to the new LAMP stack? (e.g use wget to dump the root contents, like the "wp-contents" folder into the /var/www/html root, etc. )
If anyone has a good recipe for this, I'd love to read it.
Thanks for your help.
