Hello there,

A similar question was asked before in our community, which I’ll link bellow:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/how-do-i-deploy-github-repository-and-run-it-on-digital-ocean-vps

You could use the git clone command to clone your project from GitHub to your server.

Then you could follow the steps here on how to setup pm2 to run your Node.js app 24/7 on the server:

Hi @bryced2014

You don’t actually host a repository here, you have you repository on Github and deploy it on App Platform or on your Droplet.

If you are using a Droplet, you’ll need to just do a

  1. git clone

If you are using App Platform, check the following Docs for more info:

Additionally, give the following repo a look as well it can be really helpful:
