What I’m trying to achieve is something like this: Take a snapshot of my droplet (which is doing production work at the moment) Use the snapshot to spin up a droplet. Do some development on the new, non-production droplet. Take a snapshot of that NEW droplet and replace the existing PRODUCTION droplet with the snapshot.
I don’t see this as a documented use case, but I imagine there’s some sort of workaround.
Note that the users of the PRODUCTION droplet are using the droplet IP address, and it’s a burden on them to change how they access it – which I’m trying to avoid.
