We need to Upgrade, but maintain 0 downtime. Is that possible?
We have a quick question. From the directions that we are reading it says:
1) Shutdown the existing Droplet
2) Take a Snapshot of the Droplet
3) Use that Snapshot to Create another Droplet (This is the one with 32 MB RAM)
4) Point www.Site.com to the new droplet in GoDaddy.
If we Shutdown our existing Droplet, we are down. Is there a way to just:
A) Setup site on new Droplet
B) Export Database on Droplet 1
C) Import Database on Droplet 2
D) Move DNS over to new Droplet 2 IP
E) Shutdown Droplet 1
F) Grab a glass of Malbec or Pinot Noir and Wait for DNS to Propagate.
