How to switch from Ubuntu to Debian on the droplet?

Hello I created the droplet, but instead of choosing Debian I left the default Ubuntu. Is there a way to change it? How can I do, since I have to use Debian. Thanks. Leonardo

Hi @intermedioonline,

There is no practical way but to remove/destroy the droplet you created and recreate it as a Debian one. You can switch OS on Droplets otherwise.
