Question

Transferring files from one droplet to another droplet within my account

Good morning everyone, I have a question, I have my 4 domains of my clients within the same drop of $ 15 but I want to know, if I can transfer each domain in each drop of $ 5 that is, it would be 4 drops of $ 5 and delete the $ 15 drop. Can I do it or not?

Hi there,

In addition to what Lalitha mentioned already, I could also suggest taking a look at the rsync command as per this tutorial here:

Hello @DavidLuceroSigcho ,

Yes, this is possible. We recommend you to take a Snapshot of the $15 Droplet before making any changes so that your data is saved. https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/images/snapshots/

You can create four Droplets with the required plan, and migrate the application data using an SFTP client. https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-filezilla-to-transfer-and-manage-files-securely-on-your-vps https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-sftp-to-securely-transfer-files-with-a-remote-server

Hope this helps.

Cheers, Lalitha
