Is it possible to migrate wordpress site by using Snapshot cross DigitalOcean regions?


I have a wordpress site droplet in Amsterdam, and I want to migrate the site onto droplet in San Francisco.

Can I achieve this purpose by droplet Snapshot?

If yes, what or how should I do upon the domain? should I update domain SSL certificate of let’ encrypt? how?

It would be great if there is any expert or DO official response, and it would be even much better if there is an tutorial with step by step.

Thanks in advance.

Hi @alexlii,

YEs, it’s possible to migrate your droplet using a Snapshot. Additionally, DigitalOcean have a pretty good documentation on it:

As for your SSL, you don’t need to worry about it. It’s going to be fine. Read the Docs and let me know if there is anything you don’t feel comfortable about and I’ll try to give some pointers.
