Installing snapshot onto droplet at a different location

I have an old droplet running LEMP with PHP5.6 in Amsterdam. I’ve created a snapshot so I can create a new droplet, load the snapshot and upgrade PHP manually. I’d like this new droplet to be based in London (this location was not available when I created the original droplet).

However, when I try to create a new droplet from a snapshot, I can only choose Amsterdam. Is there any way around this?

Yes. Click into the Images tab of the control panel. Find your image and click on “More” next to it. Choose “Add to Region” and select LON1 to transfer your snapshot image to London.
