Hello, I wish to self-host a blog using the Ghost framework on AWS, and I have a question before installation:
Does it make sense that I configure the Sqlite3 DB of Ghost to sit on a remote path in an S3 bucket, so that it will not reside in the same machine which runs Ghost? I am asking this from a “safety of data” perspective, if you believe it makes sense that the DB is kept in another environment than the app itself. Or would this just be too much hassle for nothing.
And a second question, while we’re at it: is there any downside on keeping database to sqlite3 or is it definitely recomended to switch to MySQL ? Is there a certain number of posts that this transition should be considered after?
