Hello there,

In addition to what has already been mentioned, I wanted to point out that CentOS Linux 8 has reached End Of Life (EOL) on December 31st, 2021.

I would strongly recommend planning either migration to another OS like Debian or Ubuntu, or upgrading to CentOS Stream.

I personally believe that the safest way to do this is to follow these steps here:

  • Spin up a new Droplet with the desired OS
  • Install the necessary services (webserver, sql server, etc.)
  • After that using rsync for example copy over your files and migrate your databases
  • Then test your website and server fully to make sure that everything is working as expected
  • Finally, change your DNS to point to the new Droplet

Hi @ralper3,

Maybe you want to use centos with two sudo permissions,and let another one to pay for your Droplets.You can generate new users with sudo permission like this:

sudo usermod -aG sudo USER NAME

Remember to use this command under root user.

As for access to only billing information to a third individual,you can create a team account on DigitalOcean,not CentOS.Then distribute one with BILLING role,which means he just have the access to pay and look billing Information.You can find more at here: Teams Roles . How to create teams.

Hope help you!
