How do I clone server to move to Digital Ocean

Hi, I would like to move my Cloudways server from Linode to Digital Ocean but Cloudways can’t tell me how. Please can someone explain the steps in brief, and how to then move DNS? Thank you.

Hi there, you’re basically looking on how to clone a server. Once you clone your server from Linode to Digital Ocean, keep in mind that it will not be in production until you switch DNS records from your DNS provider, ref to Step2 of this HowTo.

Before switching over DNS also, please do make you replicated all environment settings for the machine, as those are not automatically replicated (SSL, Crons, php settings, etc…).

Let me know if you need any other specific tips :wink:
