Digitalocean had a tutorial very simple on this link(1) to downgrade droplets, but it seems to have been updated and now is redirecting to new content. I need the code you guys can see on the red part of this image(2). If anyone can help, I would appreciate it very much.

Hello, @webgaha

I’m unable to give you the exact rsync command from this article, but you can still follow the process on how to migrate your files to a new server:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorial_series/how-to-migrate-to-a-new-linux-server

You can use a similar rsync command:

  • rsync -avz --progress source_server:/path/to/directory/to/transfer /path/to/local/directory

In the previous tutorial, we prepped our servers for data migration. At this point, your target and source system should be able to communicate (the target system should have SSH access to the source system), and you should also have a list of software and services that you need to transfer, complete with version numbers of the most important components. In this guide, we'll continue where we left off and begin the actual migration to our new server.
