Question

If I upgrade my plan will I loose my files and database?

Should I download all my data and files, open a new droplet and reset everything in order to upgrade my plans? If not, where do I upgrade my plan, please? tks! ;-)

Hi @diegplblog,

There is no need to do that. Upgrading the droplets does not erase the data on them it just adds resources on top of the ones you already have.

In order to upgrade your Droplet go to your Control Panel, on your Droplet in the right side there are 3 dots - . . . Click them and click the Resize button. From there you can resize the Droplet to whatever you need.

One suggestion, create a Snapshot of your Droplet just to be sure.
