I don’t know how to do that. I have a client that are thinking to change their Baremetal Dedicated Server to one DigitalOcean Droplet.
Actually when one client wants to change/move servers I make a tar.bz2 of all system and restore in the new one server with help of support people.
I’m using this tutorial to make/restore backup: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BackupYourSystem/TAR
And works very well.
But, how can I accomplish this without a full droplet installation?
