Has anyone managed to install n8n on Cloudways?

Ive followed all the threads on here relating to running n8n on Cloudways server, and been on with Cloudways support but I have tried multiple times to start the application with pm2 but it keeps showing stopped or error.

n8n version: 1.29.1
Database:MariaDB(MySQL)


It looks like your topic is missing some important information. Could you provide the following if applicable.

  • n8n version:
  • Database (default: SQLite):
  • n8n EXECUTIONS_PROCESS setting (default: own, main):
  • Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app):
  • Operating system:

***Got It Working using:

pm2 start 'npx n8n'

Welcome to the community @Jon_Boi_EGB!

Great to hear that you got it working. I just wanted to mention that MySQL/MaraDB support is already deprecated for a while. Meaning it could get removed from the code base at any time. So, I strongly recommend using Postgres instead not to have problems later.

Apart from that also strongly suggest using Docker.
