Hi @pincheera

As far as I can see, the One-Click image was a testing image, but it seems like it’s been removed.

Let’s see if someone from DigitalOcean can give a more precise answer - or the reason why the image was stopped. @dwilkin Darian, can you help answering this?

Hello @pincheera and @hansen! Happy to provide some additional clarity on this.

We added the .NET image as a test while we were in the “discovery” phase for some potential new offerings. Unfortunately, those new offerings (which would have related to this image) didn’t pan out, and as a result this image was more or less orphaned. We were fine retaining it, however it wasn’t used very much, and as a result it didn’t make sense to continue to devote resources to maintaining and updating it.

However it’s super easy to install and run your own .NET Core installation on Linux! There are several great guides on the Microsoft website that walk you through the steps in detail. Here’s one for Ubuntu!

As you can see, there’s nothing terribly special about the image we made, it effectively ran these steps in sequence through cloud-config on boot. You can set yours up to do the same, or just manually install it once your Droplet has been created.

I hope that helps! Please let me know if you have any more questions :)
