I am a fan of cloudron primarily for it integrating
- monitoring (memory, disk, backups, certificates, containers running) incl. warning emails
- backup/rollback procedure within webinterface
- well thought of update process within webinterface
I like it so much I would love to deploy for example blank LAMP stack and an NGINX as load balancer and mount some data volumes via NFS in, privileged access needed perhaps.
This requires flexibility cloudron doesn't provide for a reason, it's tuned to provide rather simple custom, or packaged webapps. This is totally fine and serves many people well.
I'd like to sacrifice those restrictions while keeping the three points from above, obviously requiring to write my own dockerfiles.
Do you people know of a software that does this? I was unable to find one so far
@mehdi Yes this would be maybe possible with creating my own 'app' (not sure about the privileged NFS mounts).
As I am the only one using it chances are that I would need to maintain it though, requiring quite some regular work to do.
On the other hand though, this work would need to be done anyway when creating such custom container with docker compose or so.
@dfldadm Yes, the amount of work to maintain would be basically identical. Probably even less on Cloudron as you would not have to maintain all the reverse-proxy and certificates stuff.
The NFS mounts should be doable on cloudron, as you can do them on the Ubuntu level.
@dfldadm I've built a couple custom apps that target Cloudron as a deployment platform, and published a sample of how to build/deploy to a Cloudron from GitHub Actions. Several of us would be happy to help you get that figured out if you run into any issues. In my experience, it's been roughly as easy as Heroku to operate once you get that initial setup done.
