So I’ve been hosting my with for quite some time now. They recently announced some really great value droplets, one of which is half the price of the one I’m currently using, and the only difference is that it has 5GB less SSD, fine by me.

Couldn’t downgrade, so I set up a new one. Took 15 mins to spin up a new droplet, install prerequisites, install and configure Ghost (with SSL) and have my site back up and running. That really is a testament to how far Ghost has come.


Weird that you couldn't downgrade, but at least the workaround worked.

@RyuKurisu it was because the storage was smaller. Even creating a snapshot and blowing it on to a new droplet wouldn't have worked according to their support guys. Ah well, easily worked around. 😀
