MEAN stack deployment?

Hi everyone,

I am very new to Linode and I would love to deploy my mean stack app right here but I don't know where to start. How do I get about getting everything to work, from mongodb to getting the express app working?

Links to guide would be appreciated please, as I can't seem to get/see them.

Hi @Dayo,

If you're looking to set up a Linode with a MEAN stack, what I would suggest is deploying a Linode with MEAN from our Marketplace as we have a One-Click App for it. Here's a guide on how to use them:

How to Use Linode's One-Click Apps

Once you have this deployed, all of it should be working for you since our One-Click Apps take care of all of the software installation.

If you need assistance with MongoDB and Express (since you mentioned those specifically), I recommend checking out their doc pages:

MongoDB Manual


Keep in mind that you don't need to install either of those, since they come with the One-Click installation. The Linode you deploy with the MEAN installation should work fine for you right out of the box.

@rgerke Thanks for the reply. I followed the "how to use one-click" and have the MEAN installed but the docs stated that "Other apps like MERN, LAMP, and WireGuard will require you to SSH into your Linode to access or provide more customized configurations.".

Please any links for this "customized configurations"? Thanks

@Dayo That statement is referring to the options different software applications offer. You can research the details online. But, I've linked a few places for you to start below.

Hope that helps!

Thank you @rdaniels, please am trying to add a domain here and I choose slave - with no understanding of the difference - but the field "Master Nameserver IP Address" is really confusing?

What should go in here? Any detailed tutorial on the DNS manager?


@Dayo, we actually have a great Community Question post that goes over some of the guides you'll want to review when configuring DNS on your Linode. It will probably be easiest for you to use Linodes name servers. This is all explained in the link below.

Hope this helps!
