Now to think about it, thats a better way to do it… will create a new droplet from backup and then will test on it

Then why transfer everything to a new droplet? Why not simply uninstall Apache & then install & configure Nginx?

I want to instal wordpress with Nginx, so I can make a new installation with Nginx, varnish and transfer the content through command line or something

You can simply take a snapshot of your droplet and create a new droplet off of that snapshot. This way both droplets will have the exact same contents. <br> <br>You can then modify them as you wish (remove wordpress from the first droplet, remove everything other than wordpress from the second droplet, etc.).
