Migrating from Heroku: Workers?
I’ve been able to successfully move almost everything from Heroku over to DigitalOcean, and it’s been working great.
The last piece that I’m having trouble finding documentation on is Heroku Workers. I’m able to create workers within their Procfile like this:
web: vendor/bin/heroku-php-apache2 www/
workerA: php bin/example-file1.php
workerB: php bin/example-file2.php
The scripts in the workers can run longer than the 30 second maximum imposed by Heroku for longer running tasks.
I’m unsure how to replicate this in DigitalOcean, and searching “worker” doesn’t really help.
Could anyone point me in the right direction?
