Suggestions to Deploy My Meteor App

Please help with my Meteor App deployment.
env: Meteor/Apollo/Mysql/React/Rust
Restriction: must be on local server, no third party cloud.

I have difficulty finding viable deployment roadmap and tried many ways to no avail. On obvious means of using node but I can only find Meteor/MongoDB deployment example online, no mysql. I tried to mimic but one required parameter MONG_URL for MongoDB can not be decided for mysql.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

I think you are looking for ‘mup’ which makes it very easy to deploy meteor on a linux server.


tried mup multiple times. it is not ready for production.
I found a solution using meteor as a container in production.

Thanks for your info. happy coding.

@godadada can you please explain why mup is not ready for production ? (disclaimer : I use it on 3 servers in production since 2 years).
I have also other nodejs servers running with pm2 (, I would go with it if I were not happy with mup for meteor.

Hey, I meant no offense. If it worked for you, great.
To me, It has many issues, e.g. it does not address required MONGO_URL value setting for any other dbs except mongodb; another example is the issue list on the github of mup, the issues are rarely addressed, repeated over years.


Hey no pb, just curious about what’s wrong :wink:
I’ve seen your issue (, did you try to build your own docker image (with expected nodejs version and gyp rebuild) ?
With such a complex setup, I agree mup seems not to be well adapted…
