Possible to restore snapshot to a different DO account?

  • Posted February 23, 2015


I’m currently developing a WordPress installation for a client but will eventually need to move their site to their either their own server or perhaps convince them to use Digital Ocean as a provider. In the latter case, is it possible to restore/create a snapshot to a droplet on a different user account?

Glad you figured it out! Just for anyone else that might come across this question in the future, you can transfer a snapshot to another user on the “Images” page in the control panel:

Thanks. After some further investigation, I did finally find the instructions for this. Much appreciated!

You can create an image and transfer it to a different user account via the control panel. You will need to know the destination user’s email address.
