I have a droplet all set up that I'd like to use for a different Digital Ocean account. Is it possible to copy a droplet from one Digtal Ocean account to another?

It isn't possible to move droplets between accounts but it is possible to take a snapshot of a droplet and open up a support ticket asking to transfer the snapshot to another account. Then you can simply create a new droplet based on that snapshot.
  • This is now even easier as you can transfer a snapshot to a different account without opening a support ticket: https://www.digitalocean.com/company/blog/easily-transfer-snapshots-between-accounts/
If the original droplet is a Wordpress one. Would all the information (application, DB, photos, Wordpress plugins, etc..) will be moved to the new droplet?
