Question

If I use one-click to create an application, like the Open Source Social Network, do I have to manually install/configure a database first?

Is a databae automatically installed and configured as part of the one-click install? Or is this a manual process? I assume the database can also run inside the droplet?

Hi there! Many 1-Click Apps have databases installed, although there are some cases where you’ll need to input a few things after you create that 1-Click App to complete the configuration of the database.

Marketplace Vendors will typically provide that information in their Getting Started instructions, if it’s needed.

Hope this helps and let me know if you have any other questions.
