I have SF01 droplet and want to move to SF02 (after reading your Regional Availability Matrix page!).
I have 3 droplets.
- SF01 –> Hypersoft
- SF02 –> infoway
- SF02 –> mongodb-infoway
I have not been doing much on Digital Ocean in past year. Now I need to increase size of Hypersoft Droplet … Install Node.js, Express, etc. … and better understand how to managed “stuff” … because I have convinced a friend/business partner to move his website over to Digital Ocean. So I need to “Practice” on my existing website before I try to move his website to Digital Ocean.
I have never used #’s 2,3 after initially creating them :-(
I want to “move” #1 (Hypersoft) from SF01 to SF02.
I will make SNAPSHOT of Hypersoft.
I do not need both #’s 2 & 3.
Can I just DELETE #3 (mongodb-infoway)?
Install Snapshot from #1 Hypersoft onto #2 infoway?
How do I change name of #2 infoway from “infoway” and back to “Hypersoft”?
Then Delete OLD Hypersoft?!?!??!
........... or should I ………
Make Snapshot of #1 Hypersoft.
Delete ALL #’s 1 & 2 & 3.
Create NEW larger Droplet based on SF02 … name NEW Droplet as “Hypersoft”.
Then Restore Hypersoft Snapshot onto NEW Droplet.
Thought I had better “ask” before I royally mess up! :-)
