Question

How to setup Appsmith on an existing dropplet?

I followed this tutorial to set up an Appsmith droplet, but after payment, it reloaded and somehow I ended up creating a droplet without Appsmith on it. https://marketplace.digitalocean.com/apps/appsmith

Now I can’t see any documentation to set up Appsmith on an existing droplet. OR is there a way to delete the old droplet and create a new one without with previously made payment?

Hello,

One way to do this would be to use Docker and follow the steps from the official documentation here:

https://docs.appsmith.com/setup/docker

Also, as you mentioned, you can delete your old Droplet and create a new one.

You will be charged only for the time that the old Droplet was up and running.

For example, if you have a $5 Droplet, which costs 0.007/hour and used it for 10 hours and then deleted it, you will be charged $0.07 and not the full $5.

For more information on how the DigitalOcean billing works I could suggest the following documentation page:

Best,
