Resizing Droplet with Server Blocks

Hello there. I have a Droplet on DO with server blocks that power multiple of my static websites. Is there anything I need to do before/after resizing my Droplet with this tutorial: ? Perhaps I need to restart nginx? I just want to make sure that there is as less downtime as possible, because there are lots of people on these static pages. Thanks for your help.

It should be safe to follow the steps from the official documentation.

Just make sure that your Nginx service is enabled so that it starts after a reboot. If it is not enabled you can enable it with:

systemctl enable nginx
