  • Using AWS Aurora, DigitalOcean's Database product or any external MySQL database would be awesome and a huge win for many reasons.

    Just a few being:

    • Allow for external access directly to the database.
    • Increased speed as different server/system is handling the database reads/writes
    • Decrease load on the host Cloudron Server

    Not sure if this is possible but I figured that I would plant the seed and ask. Thanks guys!

    This is possible but will increase complexity in deploys and maintenance. I have also noticed that MySQL changes things between patch releases a lot. Maybe because their release numbers don't follow semver .
