Question

How do I setup my Meteor app on my droplet.

I’ve followed the guide https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-deploy-a-meteor-js-application-on-ubuntu-14-04-with-nginx And I am having this error,

start: Unable to connect to Upstart: Failed to connect to socket /com/ubuntu/upstart: Connection refused

I’ve done research and seems like I need to install Meteor Up on my computer and do some settings then launch with that or… to be honest I dont know lol. Can someone please at least point me to the right direction because I do not want to mess up the setup and not know what to fix in the process. Thanks for any help

Here is my gist for setting up HTTPS (let’s encrypt) meteor projects on Ubuntu 16.04 droplets. I keep it up to date, so it may change over time.

Our default base image recently changed to Ubuntu 16.04. This tutorial is for 14.04. Attempting to follow this tutorial on a 16.04 droplet could likely lead to the error you are seeing.

If you are on Ubuntu 14.04 let us know the exact command you are running when you get that error message.
