I’d like to rebuild my server (updated OS, reinstall everything, restore database, yada yada).
I don’t want to take the site offline, so I would prefer to create a new droplet, build it, test it etc… and then once it’s done, take the old one offline, reconfigure the new droplet to have the same IP address.
How do I do this?
