I just read the documentation about Webdevelopment with Docker and deploying to Docker Machines. It seems to to be recommended as the easiest way for local and production development with wappler.
But the severs I can create on digitalocean, hetzner etc are full (cloud/vps) root-server, right? That means I am in complete charge for maintaining (securety, updates etc) for this server, right?
I have not jet worked with docker before, but I can’t imagine that this is a very easy thing everybody can (an should) do?!?
I have set up VPS before and when working with cpanel or plesk it’s also not very complicated to get the server running. But everytime when something is not working, it can take me hours to fix this because I don’t know all the things running in the background. That’s why I went back to shared/managed hosting for most of my php-projects. I fear I get the same server management troubles when using docker for nodejs.
So what would you say? Are these Docker Machines so easy to manage that really everybody can do this without being an server admin? Or would you recommend an other hosting solution for people who want to invest as little time in server-management als possible.
BTW: I’m currently running my fist nodeJS project on a namecheap shared hosting with nodejs-support. I thought this would make things easy, but I also spend 4h with trouble with incompatibly with nodesj-versions, errors on npm install and openSSL. So I’m looking for a better solution.
