As pas as I know, its not that simple… Check out their tutorial about rsync…

Since is a platform upgrade hence it has to be done the hard way I guess…

You have to create a new droplet with 64bit setup then transfer everything from present server to new one and then update the DNS settings to point your websites and apps to that new IP…

  1. create snapshot

  2. delete server to release IP and confirm deletion

  3. create new server of the desired size in the same datacentre. in the “select images” section switch to “my images” and select your snapshot.

Let us know if you have any further questions.
