I created a ‘template droplet’ site last week, which was a clean installation of Wordpress including my most used plugins. I then created a snapshot of my ‘template droplet’ so that I could spin up a droplet from this ‘template droplet’.
I created a new droplet from the ‘template droplet’ yesterday, and it seems like it inherited the IP address from the ‘template droplet’ in the Wordpress settings. So now when i try to access the base template the new site loads. I’ve logged into the new site backend and updated the wordpress settings to use the new droplet IP address… BUT now i can’t access either site… they are stuck in a loop. I have since powered down the new droplet so that it does not exist, but i still cannot access the ‘template droplet’ .
01 - how can I resolve this issue?
02 - how can I spin up a new droplet from the snapshot without this happening again?
Any help at all on this would be greatly appreciated. I am also willing to pay someone for their time / help with this - thank you.
