At my Linode.com site I configured a Fedora 36 volume.
Instructions for Ubuntu install don't work all the way for Fedora.
I read different articles on Metabase server install that have me confused,
I have gotten as far as installing Metabase and seeing it work for a few days online at my fixed IP address.
But now, coming back from a short trip I can't get it running again and Linode support is no help.
I suspect that I did an install of Metabase without optimal configurations.
To start over I read advice that another database like postgresql should be installed with Metabase -- but in a specific way that makes it available, detectable by Metabase. So, I would like to make sure my install correctly makes another database on the same server usable.
Now I see videos from a Linode technician stating his preference for MongoDB.
So -- please, what are the steps for a JAR install on a virtual server host like Linode with supplemental services?
And apparently it is advised to install a SQL type database to hand off some of Metabase tasks to.
With all Best Practices in this case, and NOT utilizing Docker (this time) what are my 1-2-3-4 . . .
Steps for a Terminal install of Metabase?
