Creating and Restoring backup image from another company to DigitalOcean


I own a Dedicated server on SyS (OVH), it is configured and works well.

I want to create an image like snapshot or smth and trasnfer the whole content and configurations to my new server on DigitalOcean. I have installed there CentOS7 x64, Apache 2.4, PgSQL, PHP, Varnish. I want all these to backup including CentOS, and use here like I mentioned with the same configurations because I can’t start it from scratch.

The question is: Is that possible and if yes, how can I do that?

No, you can’t. You have to migrate manually (using rsync for example).

rsync is so classic. Any other method?
