What is the best environment setup for a Node.js web app working with a MySQL server?
I want to deploy a Node web app (with Express) to a droplet. I’ve used MySQL for database management on my local machine.
I also have Cron running PHP scripts which scrape an external website for data, and insert this data into the database.
What would be the best way to get this live?
Could I setup a one-click Node.js app, then install the MySQL server and Cron, and migrate the PHP scripts and the cronjob to this droplet?
