How do I setup a secondary live development server?
EDIT: Also is it possible to copy the image of a dev server to the live server and if so how would I go about doing this?
You can copy images using the clone function of the Linode manager or disk images but it's not the best way. You'd be better off keeping your code in a repository such as git and using a scripted system such as ansible to handle deployments.
I'm just not sure how you create an additional server?
Hi there rotaercz, welcome to Linode!
You can clone your existing Linode to another Linode, in order to use the second Linode as a development staging platform.
We've got a guide that can help you here:
In order to create a new Linode, you can just use the Add a Linode link in the Linode Manager!
How do you create an additional linode to the same account?
Simply click Add a Linode in the Linode Manager, and you'll create a new Linode.
