How to Change Cloud-init Config After Droplet is Created

Cloud-init runs every time when the droplet is booted. I want to change config between restarts. Where can I find the cloud config file? I am supplying it in DO console while creating a droplet. But I need to know where it is located in the machine so that I can modify. I am using Ubuntu.

How can we have a flexible boot script (i.e. that we can change)?

ok…i did it through user data only…but this is not flexible then

If you specified Cloud-init as User data on Droplet creation, there is no way to change it. Even on Droplet rebuild it will persist same. You will have to destroy Droplet to use another script.

If you’re specifying it on some other way, I’m not sure, as I used it only as user data on Droplet creation
