Is there an alternative to the LAMP droplet image that doesn’t have the MySQL component?

It’s a nice set up for the Apache, PHP and Linux Base with the firewall etc set up, but we don’t need the MySQL Isntance.

Hi! I’m the product manager for the Marketplace. If you don’t mind me asking, why don’t you need the onboard MySQL? And what do you use as a substitute? Asking as we have been thinking about a few database specific features in the Marketplace and this would be really helpful input. Thank you!

  • Hi - Well, we plan to use a MySQL Database Managed Cluster - so the small onboard MySql instance will just be eating server resource while our production DB sits in a cluster.

    We do use a couple of LAMP droplets for some systems where the DB is “throwaway” but for the main production site - we need the active/standby/backup/scale etc.
