in reply to [OT] Next steps in using DigitalOcean to host a website running Mojolicious
Bare minimum is to set up the A record that points the domain name(s) to the IP address of your instance. With mojo (like dancer2), there is no need to install Apache. Each has it's own http service for testing. As long as the A record is set up, you just point your browser to it (http, not https - no need to bother with that yet): http://mydomain.tld:$port. Both work great behind a proxy (starman, nginx). You can specify the port (e.g., 80), but their defaults are non-standard. If you're going to be hosting different domains, then use something like nginx or haproxy as the "reverse proxy" (haproxy is my personaly preference) but it's truly up to you. Other capable reverse proxies exist as well. Although apache handles this very well, my recommendation is to stay as far away from it as possible due to it being a pain in the ass to manage and 1,000x more than what you (or most of us) want or need.
