    How to get the Operating System changed for Managed VPS godaddy

    Hi,

    Is there any way to change CentOS6 to Ubuntu 16 with root access to the managed VPS without starting another VM/VB?

     

    Support guy told e that you can do that from the root access, their job is just to make sure that machine is up and running and accessible.

     

    I don't know how can I do so.

     

    Can someone enlighten me on that..

    Hi @itally. Thanks for being part of GoDaddy Community! 

     

    Unfortunately, it wouldn't be possible to change the OS for your VPS solely with root access. You'd need to destroy/recreate the server in order to do this. Sorry Man Sad One of these help articles should help:
