Deployment

Deploying a Vendure Application

A Vendure application is essentially a Node.js application, and can be deployed to any environment that supports Node.js.

The bare minimum requirements are:

  • A server with Node.js installed
  • A database server (if using MySQL/Postgres)

A typical pattern is to run the Vendure app on the server, e.g. at http://localhost:3000 an then use nginx as a reverse proxy to direct requests from the Internet to the Vendure application.

Here is a good guide to setting up a production-ready server for an app such as Vendure: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-a-node-js-application-for-production-on-ubuntu-18-04
