So I’m going to set my first full production server up and I just wanted to run my route through you guys to see if perhaps there are better ways to do it that I am missing.
My plan is to deploy and ubuntu ec2 instance, install mongo and nginx there and deploy multiple meteor apps on that server that use the same mongo db and are routed by the nginx server.
