    I recently moved from a GoDaddy Managed WordPress account to a dedicated server with cPanel (loving everything so far!). The WordPress site works fine, but because I manually migrated the files and database, the site does not show up in my list of installed applications. Is there any way to get it to show up or "scan" for existing installs?

    Thanks in advance,
    Robert

    P.S. - I've tried to create a WordPress instance in Installatron, then manipulate the database and wp-config.php file, but that method never worked (got the famous WSOD).

    Hello :)

    I am happy to see the issue was addressed through Installatron. Note that manual installations of WordPress are not supported in the "Site Software" option within cPanel.

    Thank you.
