transferring an existing droplet into a docker image
I’m new to all this and looking for some general advice on what’s the best way of transfering my existing DigitalOcean image (droplet) into a docker image.
Thankfully, i’m still at the beginning of my project and I haven’t done the code yet, only the configuration/security of the Ubuntu OS along with SSL certificates are done.
My main concerns are:
- Do I have to recreate the docker image/configuration, or can I just take the image from DigitalOcean?
- If no1 is not possible, how do I reload my SSL certificates using Let’s Encrypt/certbot? I’ve already backed up the “/etc/letsencrypt” folder, do I just need to upload that (after what is done)?
I can’t seem to find any tutorials for the above two questions. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
