I have a simple web app that includes a backend REST api built with NodeJS/Express running on my local machine. It has standard CRUD operations, frontend makes api calls to backend etc. nothing fancy. I want to host this on digital ocean. What is the easiest way to do this? I found this example but I’m not sure if this is all still required or is this old? Is NGINX required?
I also found this that is shorter, but I’m not sure if it is missing important parts:
Any help appreciated. I think at the very least I must create a database and a droplet. Anything else?
