Setting up with DO
I’m sure this has been asked a thousand times but I can’t find any questions/answers by searching… Anyway - I’m looking to set up a rails site, discourse forum and image server here on DO, (or heroku - but I just don’t want to pay the crazy money they would want), but I have zero experience with devops.
Am I likely to be able to setup a server (with ssl) and keep it secure easily? Or am I as well to bite the bullet and pay for someone else to keep me secure (Heroku). I suppose I’m looking for anyone’s feedback who has setup a server and is keeping it secure despite a lack of devops knowledge. I’ve been looking for an outsource for a managed DO server but it doesn’t look like anyone is offering this as a service at a sensible price that I can find (feel free to suggest anyone that does).
Any answers/guidance gratefully received,
