This is what I feared! When you run df -h, it rightly shows:

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/vda1 30G 29G 0 100% /

It means your system only has 30G Disk Space!

I think if you create a new droplet immediately, then in 99.99% chances you will retain your IP!

Before going on to destroy your droplet, don’t forget to take a snapshot! Once your snapshot is created, then you can destroy your droplet and immediately create new one with the snapshot your created!

All the best!

If i create New droplet how can i work with old IP address?? all my services configured on that

I tried the following

root@host [~]# df -h

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/vda1 30G 29G 0 100% / tmpfs 1004M 0 1004M 0% /dev/shm /usr/tmpDSK 670M 18M 618M 3% /tmp root@host [~]# sudo resize2fs /dev/vda1

resize2fs 1.41.12 (17-May-2010) The filesystem is already 7863808 blocks long. Nothing to do!
