This is part of a series of discussions regarding Deploying to a Digital Ocean Droplet. For more details, please see Overview of website

Deploy to Droplet

Install HTML-Minifier

sudo npm install html-minifier -g

Before deployment

On Mac, remove quarantine from all files going to the website.

cd /Users/jv/Desktop/MyDevelopment

Look for files with

xattr -r -l  github/website/demosite | grep -i
xattr -r -l  github/website/omnifood | grep -i
xattr -r -l  github/website/internet-resources | grep -i

xattr -r -l  github/thinkful/rijksmuseum | grep -i
xattr -r -l  github/thinkful/peg-solitaire | grep -i
xattr -r -l  github/repo-images | grep -i

To remove quarantine:

xattr -r -d github/website/demosite
xattr -r -d github/website/omnifood
xattr -r -d github/website/internet-resources

xattr -r -d  github/thinkful/rijksmuseum | grep -i
xattr -r -d  github/website/peg-solitaire | grep -i
xattr -r -d  github/repo-images | grep -i

Execute Deploy Script on Production Server

From Mac



chmod 744 deploy-apps

Execute the deploy


Restart Ghost

pm2 restart all

Restart Nginx Server

sudo nginx -t
sudo systemctl restart nginx

Copy Deploy Script to Production Server

Be careful before doing this as your production server version of the deploy script is going to be replaced.

cd tmp
