#Create API Key
For the communication with the Vultr interface, you need to enter an API Key.
To create an API Key do the following steps:
- To enable Automatic Snapshots, click in the left menu on Vultr and then on the tab Settings.
- Select the Frequency and Retention Period and click on the button Save.
Four Snapshots will be created per day and deleted after seven days with the following configuration.
Snapshots are a point-in-time image of the entire instance SSD for data disaster recovery. The instance will not be stopped when taking a snapshot; modern file systems and databases handle this scenario well.
To create a Snapshot, click in the left menu on Vultr and then on the tab Snapshots.
Click on the button Create Snapshot top right.
- Enter the Snapshot Name and click on Create.
- The Snapshot is now being created by Vultr.
