Setup frontend reactjs app together with nestjs node js backend app which is using MySQL db

Dear ladies and gentleman,

I am a software developer who built one very interesting platform based on questions and answers. Technologies which I used to build this platform or web application are: reactjs on frontend side nestjs (based on nodejs) on backend side and MySQL db. I want to deploy this web application using your services. I am not experience in devops part of the development cycle. Can you please help me with some tutorial how to do that. Thank you in advance.

Best regards,

Zajim Kujovic

Hello @kfsys,

How can I use Managed Database for my backend project? The backend project is also code written project built on top of nodejs. So frontend communicate through defined REST APIs with backend project. Backend project then use MySQL db to store the data. To be honest all of this seems very complicated to me to host very simple project I built. I just want to enter my domain in the browser and see the html page. What is the simplest possible solution to do this taking in the consideration the projects I have described above. I just want the most simplest solution if you have. If not, then unfortunately I will have to change the cloud provider. Best regards

Hi @zajimk,

What you can configure with the App Platform is to host the frontend there and for the backend to use the DigitalOcean Managed Database Solutions. Here are links to both product’s Docs to take a look:

DigitalOcean’s Managed Databases are a fully managed, high performance database cluster service. Using managed databases is a powerful alternative to installing, configuring, maintaining, and securing databases by hand.
