Resiza a droplet

Hello, i have few question before starting a resize of a droplet :

  • if i change from shared CPU plan to dedicated CPU plan, everything remains the same in the droplet (data, configuration of the system etc)?
  • when i turn ON the droplet after a resize, all the services restart again automatically (php, nginx, mysql etc)

thanks in advance

The answer to both questions should be yes, but I could suggest a couple of things first:

  • Usually before making any changes to your server, make sure to have a backup. That way if anything goes wrong, you could always revert to a working version of the Droplet.

  • Make sure that your services are enabled to start on boot, for example, to make sure that the Nginx service starts after a server restart you can enable it with:

  1. sudo systemctl enable nginx

Or to check if it is already enabled you can run:

  1. sudo systemctl status nginx

If the status is enabled then this means that the service will start after your server boots up.

Hope that this helps!
