Hi there @programui,

Yes, you would have root access to your Droplet so you will be able to make any configuration changes that you require.

Here is a step by step guide on how to get started with the MERN stack:

It uses a local MongoDB database, but all that you would need to do is skip the MongoDB installation and provide the connection details to your MongoDB atlas database.

Hope that this helps! Regards, Bobby
