This tutorial provides a step-by-step guide to deploying Xojo web apps on a Linux server. You’ll find deployment of more complex web apps can follow the same basic principles. If all of this seems too complex, Xojo Cloud is the easy, powerful and secure way to deploy web apps.
You can package your Xojo Web Apps in a Docker Image. That allows you to run an instance of your applications easily in a Docker Container. Docker provides the infrastructure to host the apps, start/stop them, switch between image versions – and much more.
