I was trying to explore the API and such and see what I can do to automate my snapshots, but I’m still a bit lost. For one, I cannot use the API to safely shutdown my droplet (have a support issue open but seems like they consider it “best effort”) and I don’t want to risk a power_off due to this being a production server and writing to a database frequently.
I’m open to scripts, other solutions, advice, etc.

Does a solution like this exist so that I can automate my snapshots and maintain the images too? At the very least hoping to automate the snapshots and I can manually maintain the images.
Your help would be greatly appreciated, thank you in advance!
