Hi there @salvatoregrisaffi,

There are a couple of ways of rebooting a Droplet. You can do it via your Control panel at:

Then follow these steps:

  • Go to Droplets
  • Click on the Droplet that you want to reboot
  • Click on the On/Off button

Another option is to use the DigitalOcean API in case that you need to programmatically do the reboot. You can follow the steps on how to do that here:
