PHPInitial Server Setup

Hi all!

I’m currently in the process of looking for a new home for my project, currently its held on a single server which is more or less a vps with an apache2 container that I can deploy my code to via DeployHQ.

Was thinking on moving my application into a docker container, than using a managed database have the two work together.

I was looking at the Apps platform, wondering if its more designed for static websites or ok for a full blown php application?

Yes, you can run a full-blown PHP application on the DigitalOcean App platform.

You could deploy your application directly from Docker Hub or you could let the App platform build your image automatically each time you push code to your main branch.

Hope that this helps!
