Installing wordpress website on a dokku instance having a working node app (mobile app backend)

Node.js WordPress Dokku Ubuntu 18.04

I have created a dokku instance using DO one-touch setup and installed a node app which is functioning as a mobile app backend. I would like to install WordPress on the same instance with a different domain name.

can someone guide me, please?

    remote: ! This is most likely a temporary internal error. If the problem

Hey friend!

I don’t use Dokku myself, so it may well be that someone else can come in behind me and give a better answer. That said, I really do like Dokku (just lack the use case/time), and I think I understand it well enough to know that these may be valuable resources for what you’re trying to do:
