  1. With DO setting sql_require_primary_key=1 you can't even install any extensions using composer, because you will receive the "SQLSTATE[HY000]: General error: 3750 Unable to create or change a table without a primary key" error since most extensions create tables. Not sure installing Magento 2 on DO managed databases is even feasible at this point.

  2. Since the SSL on the load balancer is passthrough, how do you renew the cert, since the domain is now pointed to the load balancer and not the web server(as was the case when SSL was originally setup)?
