How to install a fresh OS onto your instance and boot it up.

If anytime you mess any installations the first time you are free to rebuild your instance and start from scratch by re-installing a fresh OS onto your instance.

This will format your disks and all your current data will be erased and are not recoverable.

To rebuild your instance you can follow these steps in order,

Log in to the CloudCone panel at
Navigate to the Compute page
Access the instance management page by clicking on the Manage button of your instance
Then select Rebuild from the left side navigation menu.

From the Rebuild page, select the operating system you want to install on your instance and click on the Re-install OS button. You will be asked to confirm your action. Click Yes to continue.

The rebuilding process will take around 40 seconds to complete and after that, you are good to go.

Once you click the Re-install button, your server will be shutdown, and you can ping your IP to see when it is back online 😀
