I’m migrating websites from 1 host to another, and the 2nd host doesn’t accept bedrock installations.
Now I want to change the roots/bedrock installation and make it a Wordpress installation. What I did:
Created new Wordpress installation
Moved all the Bedrock app/ content to wp-content (themes, plugins, mu-plugins, uploads and more)
Gave it the old database and changed the wp_options to the new .test link
Edited wp-config.php to have the correct local settings.
It ran locally, but after importing the old database and made wp-config.php have the correct information. It returned me an 502 Bad Gateway error.
I’m pretty familiar with Wordpress and tried disabling the plugins, removing the mu-plugins, checked my nginx logs (which were empty), used a script to find usages of the old URL in the database and swap it with the local one.
I figure that it’s a database issue, maybe something with pathing.
So if anyone has a clue or ran in to the same issues whilst porting back to regular WP from a bedrock installation, please let me know how you did it, or what I did wrong.
True! Although the same manual way is pretty good described in this article imo. I did the same steps in the first place as you describe but they gave me issues along the way. It’s nice to see a tutorial and follow it step by step.
Sadly we had to move away from Bedrock since our new hosting party didn’t accept a Bedrock installation.
