I have a 1gb droplet. I have automatic backups. I’d like to run a snapshot (to save a particular clean state), but I don’t want downtime (it’s my only production server).
One post says that for a 1gb server you don’t need to shut down, but I get: Droplet is currently on. Please power it off to run this event.
Is there another way? I could use rsnapshot, but can I do a full system restore from an rsnapshot image? (that would be better, because I could save it on my large NAS).
