Hi,

I would like to upgrade to the 1GB ($10).

What is the best/recommended way to move from the 512MB ($5) to the 1GB($10) droplet without losing files and server configuration?

Thanks

This guide provides an overview of the two available resize options. Using either of these you can quickly scale up your droplet without losing your files or configuration.

Resizing your servers can be an effective way of increasing their capacity, by allowing them to utilize more memory (RAM), CPU, and disk storage. The ability to resize a server, also known as vertical scaling, can be useful in a variety of situations that prompt the need for a more powerful server, such as if your concurrent user base increases or if you need to store more data. In this tutorial, we will show you how to resize your server, also known as a droplet, on DigitalOcean.
