I’m trying to build a simple PHP web app and I’m trying to trace the documentation to a list of available configuration options. All I get is a sample app with an index.php file and “go look at Heroku buildpacks” … https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/app-platform/build-system/cloud-native-buildpacks/php/
However, there is no canonical example of what file (Procfile, app.yml, JSON(?)) I should use and what it can and should contain and the few examples I find over at Heroku are limited and very specific to themselves.
I want to run a simple php web application that uses a subdirectory for all public routes. Does App Platform use NGINX or APACHE? Heroku let’s me choose, but I have a hunch that DO doesn’t work verbatim like Heroku. Can I choose? If so how do I control request routing and configuration? Can I alter PHP-FPM config options as Heroku describes?
The documentation was equally as terse for the Go web application but trial and error was a bit easier as I was only running a binary.
Does a full list of options and recommendations exist for App Platform or is the expectation that I have a full Docker/docker-compose flow where I run my own nginx on the server behind what I presume is already nginx running publicly?
