Creating a local environment from an existing droplet?
I have a custom site running on an Ubuntu LAMP 16.04 droplet. The site is built with PHP and has entries in a SQL database.
What’s the best way to clone this droplet as-is (SQL database and all) and run it locally? Once local I’ll configure it with Git and use GitHub Actions to rsync back to the production server.
