I was using a shared hosting for my WordPress blog always. But now, I want to try Digital Ocean. I found 50$ free credit coupon and it is working well.
Before migrating my blog to Digital Oceans server, I want to ask some questions. I’m very noob.
1- My blog use Litespeed cache plugin because server of the shared hosting supports Litespeed server (Apache). So when I create a new droplet on Digital Ocean should I use apache+Litespeed or nginx?
Litespeed provides free license:
2- Also I have never tried Nginx. If migrate my blog from Apache+Litespeed to Ngix, htaccess won’t work?
3- I know everything about managing WordPress but I don’t know anything about server optimization and security of the server. What should I do? One-click-app for Wordpress will be enough?
4- Operating system of my laptop is MacOS. Should I use Terminal directly to connect my server?
These questions are so important for me. Thank you for your helps
