Hi @tinylightseagreenray,

From what I understand you mean to migrate the data over as well to your new Droplet is that correct? If that’s the case you’ll need to copy data over one Droplet to the Other. One way is what has already been mentioned using rsync and scp the other one using a GUI is using FileZila. You can check this tutorial on more information

Hello there,

If you want to migrate a website from one droplet to another, you’ll need to copy the data across using tools like rsync or scp. You can check our tutorial on How To Copy Files With Rsync Over SSH

Additionally, if you have a database, you’ll need to export it and then import the database on the new droplet.
