Looking to get Strapi working on opalstack.com (a traditional web host but close to a VPS - formally webfaction). In other words I’m using not Netlify, not Heroku etc.
Then to allow editors to create content with Strapi to update a Nuxt Static app. As the Nuxt /dist is built offline on my PC then uploaded to a simple static app on Opalstack can Strapi created content be automatically injected into the html/JS on the server? Seems improbable. This to keep the SEO benefits of the Nuxt Static approach. Many Strapi Docs seem to involve Heroku/Netlify type solutions where the site is rebuilt automagically with every change. I think.
And struggling to get Strapi working on Opalstack - a Node problem I think (never used Node on a Production server). I’ve created a Node App which contains App.js with “Hello World from NodeJS” and a stop/start script and that’s about it.
Then the npm create-strapi-app appname --quickstart which creates a subfolder with Strapi but after that I’m stumped. In the browser, I only ever see “Hello World…” I’ve tried updating the .env and config/server.js with my servers IP address and Port (from 1337). And npm run develop etc.
Tried all sorts of URLs with /admin or /dashboard and /appname/admin and /appname/dashboard etc. Either a nginx or 502 (when I remove App.js). I’m obviously not running the Node app properly.
Anyone any experience of the above i.e. Nuxt/Strapi on traditional hosting rather than fancy Platforms.
