Is there a ready made droplet for a mysql database that deals with backup etc
Hi, I want to add a database to our droplet. I realize that DigitalOcean doesn’t offer database as a service (which sucks to be honest).
I just don’t want to deal with all the little details and hassles of setting this stuff up manually only to find out after a year that my server crashed and my backups stopped working 6 months ago.
What I’m looking for is a setup that can be expected to generally keep running without too much monitoring, create backups, remove old backups after x months. That kind of thing.
Is there any kind of out of the box distribution for a droplet that gets me an opinionated installation of mysql, with bacjups set up to store backups on block storage etc?
