How to creating a new droplet from existing snapshot for new domain?

Hello, I have one droplet which is up and running on Virtualmin | centos | apache for one domain. Now i want to create a new droplet for another domain without going into hassle of setting up everything from scratch.

I know a droplet can be created through snapshot. But will it be possible to create a droplet with different IP and different region with every other settings intact?

Please let me know how to proceed.

Thanks in advance.

Yes you can create a snapshot with different ip address as well as for another region. They all wouldnt be the same otherwise there would be conflicts. <br> <br>Just make a snapshot, goto create another droplet, and choose “My Images” and go from there.

Hello all. This new droplet has to be exactly the same size? I am using a prod server and I want to create a staging one based on a snapshop from the prod server, but much smaller

The login credentials should be the same as the ones set up on the original droplet (from which you took the snapshot). <br> <br>What port did you use to connect to Webmin/Virtualmin’s web console on your original droplet?
