Question

Restore a backup or snapshot into a docker container

Posted April 21, 2014 4k views
Would it be possible to take a backup of a droplet and then restore it into a docker container of another droplet? I assume not, but wow would that rock.

Unfortunately that is not possible as we do not support downloading/exporting images.
You can however restore the backup, power on the droplet, download the contents, and then upload it to another droplet.
