Install unpackaged apps

PHP or HTML/JS apps

If your app is a PHP or HTML/JS app, you probably should use the Custom Webapp, also know as my_webapp, in order to configure nginx, php, mysql, YunoHost permission and backup for you.

Other technologies

If you use some other technology, you should install it like on a classical Debian.

To expose the app on the web through nginx and be able to manage access permissions to the webapp, you could use the redirect app to create a nginx reverse proxy on your local ip/port running the service.

You should use the proxy mode of the redirect app and not HTTP redirections mode.

You probably should create custom backup and restore hooks to integrate your app to your YunoHost backup/restore process. See Backup and restore hooks
