It seems DO distributions are fairly different from the official ones. That together with the impossibility of downloading images or backups means it’s very challenging to configure identical local (testing) and remote (production) server environments.
what would be the best way to ensure your local and remote servers are as similar as possible?
are there downloadable images or configuration scripts to go from say, a stock Ubuntu 14.04x64 to a DO Ubuntu?
I know being able to download and upload images is a planned feature, but what can we do in the meantime?
