Move droplet with VestaCP to anoter region with snapshot. Vesta CP configuration?

I tried to move a droplet (not in production) with Ubuntu + Vesta control panel to another region. I made a snapshot, moved to the other region and created the new droplet from the image.

All went almost well. The only problem is that I can not connect through http (port 80). I can connect to VestaCP port 8083, FTP … all seems fine but port 80. Digging I’ve found that nginx was not running. Lurking through the logs I see that it is trying to start the local ip address of the previous droplet. The configuration of Vesta is still having the old IPs so I guess it’s a matter of erasing and creating the new ones.

I will recreate the droplet but before I’d like to ask if anyone knows specific steps to follow to re-configure the IPs and anything else when the droplet is using VestaCP. (from what I’ve seen in the instructions to move apparently you don’t need to do anything with Apache, Nginx etc, right?)

Problem solved: I had to remove the old IPs in Vesta and add the ones of the new droplet.

But first look in Vesta -> Web. If there’s any domain assigned to the old local IP, you must change this or you will not be able to delete that old local IP.
