I’m new to prisma and going through a tutorial trying to deploy a prisma server to digitalocean using docker-machine:
In Section 14 it asks me to choose the Minimal setup: database-only option from the interactive prompt.
I’ve updated the Latest CLI version is currently 1.9.0
prisma init doesn’t offer you this option.
It does offer:
Set up a new Prisma server for local development (based on docker-compose)
- Use existing database - Connect to an existing database
- Create new database - Set up a local database using Docker
Or deploy to an existing Prisma server
- Demo server - Hosted demo environment incl. database (requires login)
- Use other server - Manually provide endpoint of a running Prisma server
Since this tutorial is about deploying a prisma server on digitalocean I ruled out the first section of “local development” and since I’m not about deploying to the demo cloud in this tutorial but to the digitalocean droplet this tutorial guids you to build - I chose the last option…
As you guessed I did not succeed to deploy to digitalocean even though I followed all of the steps carefully afterwards.
Did I choose the wrong option?
Did anyone here complete this tutorial successfully?
Eventually - when I run prisma deploy it throws an error saying
Could not connect to server at http://xx.xx.xx.xx:4466. Please check if your server is running.
Guess what - it is running… it shows on my digitalocean droplets list as running and docker-machine displays it on docker-machine ls
Any ideas what to do next??
