How to resize my file system in ubuntu after resizing a droplet?
I create a 20GB droplet and create a snapshot then I realize that I will need more space so I did a permanent resize on the droplet to 40 GB but I made a mistake on the configuration and I restored the snapshot but when I check the space (df -h) its listed only 20 GB. I contacted the support of digitalocean and they told me that they can put the droplet on recovery and the I can change the size, but I wasn’t able to do it since the only information that I found this command
sudo resize2fs /dev/vda1 but I wasn’t able to make it to work, can you help me to resolve this issue?
