Hi there,

There are two suggestions:

  • You could use the DigitalOcean App Platform, that way you would not need to do any server management and would only need to define your environment variables. Here is a quick guide on how to do this:

With the App Platform you would need to use a Managed Database cluster in case that you need a database:

  • In case that you already have some experience with managing servers, you could use a Droplet rather than the App Platform. There is a Ruby on Rails 1-Click installation image that you can use here:

Once you create your server, you could use git clone to clone your project on the server and complete the setup there.

Hope that this helps!
