I’m trying to start using digital ocean apps.
My server connects to a digital ocean database, but using ‘ca-certificate.crt’.
I have seen that you shouldn’t put certs in a repo (even though mine is private to just me).
So how should I get the cert onto the app? It’s gotta get it from somewhere right? Why is putting it on the repo less secure?

Great question, while App Platform doesn’t allow injection of secrets to files yet, there is an easy workaround using environment variables.
