Question

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?

Thanks.
