Quickest way to duplicate project to new account

Hi all - I want to copy a droplet I have to a whole new account. Is the best way of doing this by taking a snapshot and copying the snapshot to the new account? The droplet contains a lavarel web app with 2 databases.

Thanks for this, @xMudrii - is there a way to duplicate it instead of transferring it? I still want that droplet to appear in the old account, but I want it in the new one as well. (Essentially there will end up being two versions). Thanks!

Yes, it’s probably the fastest way to duplicate project. Go to Control Panel -> Images, click More on desired Snapshot and you’ll see Change Owner. Click on it and enter Recipient email address.

When you or owner login to that account, go to Images, you’ll see option to accept Snapshot Transfer.

You can copy files and install all needed packages manually. But I think it’ll consume you much more time as you need to setup server from beginning and copy all files. With Snapshot Transfer, it can be done under 10 minutes. :)
