- Plesk for Windows
After migration from Windows with local MySQL server to Windows with remote Linux MySQL server, WordPress website returns WordPress installer wizard instead of its content.
Tables prefixes in the migrated database are in lowercase:
The issue caused by the fact that Linux systems are case sensitive. As a result, WordPress cannot read the database after migration from a Windows (local) to a Linux (remote) database server. There is an internal request PMT-4696 to implement the warning regarding it into Plesk Migrator.
As a workaround, perform the following steps:
Navigate to Subscriptions > example.com > File Manager, open the
wp-config.phpfile and replace all capital letters with lowercase for table prefixes; for example:
CONFIG_TEXT: $table_prefix = '0prIJ_';
CONFIG_TEXT: $table_prefix = '0prij_';
