LoveAndroo gave up because he was so far out of his depth he could not see his feet.
He was having constant trouble with a windows interface before this, he is not a developer or even close.
Expecting him to be comfortable with compiling and maintaining stack on linux is just not realistic.
He should have been advised to stick with what he can handle like windows, (click a button and it updates itself) Thats pretty smooth, maybe not fully automatic but still pretty smooth.
I understand someone probably suggested he spin up a cloud droplet on ubuntu and simply compile his own stack, probably because its the cheapest option, but its not for everyone.
I know everybody means well and everybody wants to help Androo because he is not afraid to put himself out there and ask for help, but I think there should have been an element of “Can this person feel comfortable doing this stuff?” and perhaps advised him to stay in the shallows for a while.
I saw two post from him, one saying something like "can someone help me make a domain"
next minute, he posts "I am running ubuntu (which I know absolutely nothing about) on a digital ocean droplet (which I know nothing about) and I have no idea what I am doing.
I kinda feel like he was thrown to the wolves.
To say “Linux is not for everyone” means just that, I have been using Coals auto compile script too which works very well, I know very little about Linux and I have to regularly ask Coal for advice about my cloud setup because the 3 commands simply arent enough, the domain stops for no reason and I cant get it restarted sometimes, lately the nameserver has been playing up. sometimes content goes missing. When anything goes wrong on any of my windows stacks I have a hope of tracing and fixing the problem, but if anything goes wrong with any of my linux setups I am screwed and have no idea how to trace and fix, I have to call Coal each time.
I suggest we dont offer a linux solution to non Linux people, its a recipe for disaster and the net result will be total abandonment.
