What’s a simple recommended way to run a personal blog on fly.io?
Hugo? Full WordPress? LiveBook? Was looking at github pages with a CI page builder using their docs, but would like to use fly.io as the tooling is lovely.
What are others doing?
Anything you can pack into a docker image would probably run on here. For my own blog, I decided to go with
hugo + caddy. During the docker build step just copy the files to a location caddy can serve them up.
You can even go further by adding a
[[statics]] section to your
fly.toml which instructs fly.io to cache and serve your static files from our edge servers à la CDN. More details here: First look: static asset caching
I’m trying to run a Wordpress Docker image in one fly.io container, and a MySQL in another container (guide here)
It’s easy to set up, but actually struggling with cryptic “database error” messages in Wordpress.
