Question

Why is the Archlinux image missing from the control panel?

Hi,

Why is the Arch image missing from the ‘droplet creation page’? It was there before. I couldn’t find anything about in in the blog or on the support, and if the decided to stop the support for Arch (witch I hope they didn’t), why did they do that ?

Try out this script! It converts a Debian 7.0 installation into a fully-updated Arch installation. Feedback appreciated!

Also Arch Linux is Bleeding edge, which is never a good idea for a server.

ok, that’s a shame, but I understand. Let’s switch over to CentOS then.

Thanks for your quick answer!
