Creating an Image of Your Server

An image is a backup copy of your server. You can restore your server at any time by installing an image. You can also use an image to set up another server as a clone of the first.

With a backup plan, you can have images created automatically at regular, scheduled intervals. While an image is being created, you cannot make changes to your server.

  • You are in the Infrastructure > Servers section of the Cloud Panel.
  • Click the Create button.

  • Enter a name for the image.

  • Select the Create an image option.

  • Select the server from which you want to create the image.

  • If you want the images to be created automatically, click Show next to Advanced Options and activate the Automatic image creation option.

    Up to 200 images can be stored. As soon as this limit is reached, the oldest image is deleted.

    • Select an interval.

    • Enter the maximum number of images to be saved.

  • Click Create.

The image creation process will now begin. This process may take a few minutes to complete.

As a reminder, it is imperative that you do not make changes to your server during this time as it could result in data corruption
