Digital Ocean v2: Migrate V1 to V2

Digital ocean module v2 is not a direct upgrade for v1. here are the steps required to migrate a client from v1 to v2.

Setup Products

  • Please ensure you have followed the setup guide and have a v2 product ready.


  • Please see the following video which shows how to copy droplet data to a new service


  • If a client has snapshots, you will need to order a snapshot product and manually enter the snapshot_id and name (similar to adding droplet_id in the above video). The snapshot_id and name can be found in your Digital Ocean client area.

Digital Ocean v2: Customization

There are several .tpl files in /modules/servers/ folders that can be edited as required
You can also edit the “Dedicated/VPS Server Welcome Email”. This must contain:

Main IP Address: {$service_dedicated_ip}
Username: {$service_username}
Password: {$service_password}

Digital Ocean v2: Email Piping or POP/IMAP import

For clients to be able to receive the droplet login details, you will need to setup email piping. We recommend creating a separate email address (such as [email protected]) to avoid any issues with non Digital Ocean emails.

The email address must be setup with Digital Ocean here.

The correct paths and method of installation will depend on your server – please check with your control panel provider or system administrator for exact setup instructions.

You only need to setup POP/IMAP or Piping, not both.



Setup the login details for your mail server:

Then create a php cron job to the import file, we recommend every 5 minutes e.g.

*/5 * * * * /path/to/php /path/to/modules/addons/digitalocean2/import.php
