Droplet LAMP stack duplication with snapshots ?

October 29, 2014 1.4k views

So i have a Ubuntu 14.04 Lampstack running a website with phpmyadmin installed .
I powered the droplet off created a snapshot and tried to spin up a droplet using that snapshot . after checking the IP the website isn't shown and i cant SSH in with the same user credentials like i could with the original droplet ?

Any basic reasoning or trouble shouting about why my droplets exact backup doesn't display a website on a new droplet ?

Thanks in advance for you time .

    When you create a new droplet, arent new credentials generated then emailed to you?

    //im a noob here so disregard if Im way off

  • Hey Jason ,

    New credentials are emailed to you when you create a droplet from a snapshot and don't use a SSH key that is stored on the digital ocean dashboard . As my previous comment already stated something derped with the generating of the snapshot but everything works fine now ^^
