III. Snapshot feature in Vultr
There is a problem set out like this: I often need to create quite a lot of VPS for the system I do. For example, every single child outsource needs to create 1 VPS for clients, which leads to me to repeatedly manipulate such VPS settings.
If you only need to install VPS, it’s okay, it’s important to install the environment and other necessary things such as JDK, MySQL, Nodejs, setting firewall,…. When all the frequency is complete, it is also close.
So, instead of having to install it so many times, I created 1 snapshot, like 1 copy of all the basic settings of that VPS. Now when new 1 VPS is created. I just poured the entire copy as above to the VPS is done. The rest is for the system to do it yourself.
Next we’ll go into the details of creating and using snapshot:
You in the detail of a VPS select tab Snapshots/
Enter name and click Take Snapshot/
You wait until the process is finished
In step select Server Type of the VPS creation process. Instead of choosing 64 bit OS you select the Snapshot tab/
Then select the snapshot you want to restore is done. Other steps do the same as usual.
