How to reinstall a Cloud server

Reinstalling a Cloud service can be useful to have a server with the same features as one created previously. Also, it is useful in case we have had any software problem that prevents us from recovering the server.

❗ Reinstalling a Cloud involves:

  • Irretrievably deleting all the data on the server.
  • Execute the installation process with the same configuration with which it was created in the first place.
  • The reinstalled Cloud will keep the same name, alias and IP address. If any, all backups will also be retained.
  • Reinstalling the Cloud will have no effect on billing or administration services.

Remember that if you experience any Software problem, you can communicate it to us via technical ticket and our technicians will do their best to solve it.
