I would go with 64-bit in case you need to resize your droplet for more RAM in the future, if your NodeBB forum gets super popular. It's not really hurting anything to go with 64-bit anyway.
Suggest me a control panel for Debian 7 Digital Ocean VPS for NodeBB
I tried Ajeni - Very basic
Had a go with Vesta CP - Took my site down for 2 days.
Now I do not have any control panel. But I want to do tasks like take backups before upgrade, set emails etc. Any suggestions ?
@meetdilip You can use Digital Oceans backup feature to take a snapshot of your site. As for emails, why not use mandrill or one of the other third party alternatives, Mandrill gives you about 12k emails a month for free. As was mentioned in the other thread, you don't necessarily need a control panel, and as you've found out, some can cause more issues than they solve.
lol, ya. Those CPs were real mess. I do not want to sent mailers. Instead I want to make my own email id. Say firstname.lastname@example.org .
I'm not sure how well it will work with digital ocean though. Works well with a dedicated server though!
