Install meteor on remote server


#1

Meteor up is a good tool but I am facing a lot many problems with it which I have not been able to solve.

  1. Create mongodbs backup and restore for apps deployed using meteor up?
  2. Different apps same database using meteor up?

I would like to know why can’t we just

curl https://install.meteor.com/ | sh

on remote server and run apps on it. What are the disadvantages of it? Why should we even care about meteor build?

Answer for your question is on your question :smile:

curl install is only for a dev setup.
Production deployment want different needs. Your points 1, 2 are two of many such needs.

Meteor Up is trying to solve some of these problems. Meteor’s Galaxy is trying to solve it in much better way with SLAs.

Deployment is always hard.
