Does not use MongoDB in Marketplace 1-click app FARM Stack Droplet.

I have deployed my web application in the Marketplace 1-click apps for FARM stack. However, I end up not using the MongoDB service installed in the Droplet.

Therefore, will I be charged for the MongoDB service? Can I just uninstalled the MongoDB service from my Droplet? Do I need to redeployed my web app in a new Droplet using OS and not the 1-click app?

Hope to get an answer.

Thank you.

When you deploy a web application using a 1-click app from the DigitalOcean Marketplace, like the FARM stack, you’re billed for the Droplet resources (CPU, memory, disk space, and bandwidth) regardless of the specific software or services installed on that droplet.

This means there’s no additional charge for MongoDB or any other service installed as part of the 1-click app beyond what you’re paying for the Droplet itself.

If you’re not using the MongoDB service installed on the Droplet, you can indeed uninstall it to potentially free up system resources (such as memory and disk space). But this will not really affect your billing. Your cost is associated with the Droplet size and not the individual software applications running on it.

Hope that this helps!
