Migrating VPS - content

Ghost-CLI version: 1.13.1
Ghost version: 3.0.2 => 3.7.0

I’m migrating to another VPS, and having problems with the instance-/content-folder.
I copied over the entire content folder, but no images and no themes are found.

  • Why is it’s contents not picked up by ghost?

It seems like some flags have to be set by manually doing things, like adding a theme, for the images and uploading a routes.yaml for stuff to kick in?

The reason I need to know is that I have six more sites to migrate, and I really need to know what’s going on to not spend excessive days on this.


How did you copy the files over? It’s possible that the file permissions are incorrect. What happens when you run ghost doctor in your ghost installation folder?

All files were allready chowned to current user and ghost doctor ran accordingly with no issues.

I have repeated the process several times in order to find what is wrong, but can’t figure it out.

Is there anything in the DB related to if themes or routes have been added, perhaps?
