Setting up RocketChat on Ubuntu with other Instances

Hello to all!

Currently running on my server (details to follow) Nextcloud and Wordpress installed via LAMP stack. Can I now simply set up a Rocket server there via Snap? What is there to consider? Is it better not to do it via snap and choose a different installation method? Thanks in advance for your help! :grin:

Server Setup Information

  • Version of Rocket.Chat Server:
  • Operating System: Ubuntu 20.04.4 LTS
  • Deployment Method: snap
  • Number of Running Instances: 2


It’s be better to use docker instead of snap as it will give you way more control over your deployment and save you some dependencies and other problems.

You can still run Rocket.Chat with docker and leave the LAMP stack alone. Not sure how you are doing the reverse proxy of this deployment, but you will need to configure it accordingly to expose Rocket.Chat to the world, if you want that.
