Question

How do I create multiple droplets from one snapshot

Basically, I made a 10.04 droplet, installed LAMP, and installed WordPress. I made a lot of custom changes to the wordpress installation then made a snapshot. I want to be able to create new droplets from that droplet that is set up the way I like when I’m going to build a new website. When I created a droplet from that snapshot it redirected to the IP that was used to create the snapshot. I tried numerous things that I found on the forum here, I’ll spare everyone the details of what I tried, and ask if someone has an easy way of creating multiple droplets from that single snapshot and not have them redirect. Thanks to anyone who can help!

You probably have “Site URL” set to the old droplet. Try changing it: <a href=“http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL”>http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL</a>.
