First steps to getting an online app working, is having a working and properly setup server. I have tried Forge from Laravel creator and it’s been great, but I feel like I need to figure out how to do this myself if I am to actually run a one-man business at some point. Plus it’s going to be a new and interesting learning experience.

I will be using DigitalOcean for hosting and Namecheap for the domain. I will go into as much detail as I can on how I plan to set up the servers with Ansible and the deployment process with Deployer.

More coming soon.
