There’s a high chance you’ll get the same IP address if you create it immediately after the old droplet is destroyed, though.

You could always run the following command to replace all references to you old IP with your new one though: <br> <br>find . -type f -name '*.*' -exec sed -i 's|OLD-IP|NEW-IP|g' {} \; <br>(Replacing OLD-IP and NEW-IP, respectively, to get things back up and going.)

Destroying your droplet and re-creating at a later date, you would be provided with a different IP address.
