Recovering a Server from an Image

You may need to revert your server back to a previous state for several possible reasons. Fortunately, you can restore your server from a backup image at any time.

Additional Information
  • While an image is being created, do not make changes to the server.

  • The credentials on the image will be identical to those of the originating server.

Prerequisite
  • You are in the Infrastructure > Servers section of the Cloud Panel.
  • Select the desired server.

  • Click Actions and select Reinstall Image.

  • Click on My Images.

  • Select the desired image.

  • Optional: In the Advanced Options section, click Show.

  • Optional: To manually configure your server's post-creation script after the reinstallation, insert the desired post-creation script in the User Data field.

  • Click Reinstall Image.

Your server will now be restored. This process may take a few minutes.
