| ||Ask HN: What should I build to support my web app?|

|One of the major reasons I wanted to apply to YC this spring was because I know that there are many things I haven't thought about - that I need to power my web app, that PG and the crew will be able to guide me along that path.|
My wife is 3 months pregnant and I decided that now is not the best time, but I will be building my web app anyway.
So...my question is...for those HNers that have been through the YC process, or anybody that has built a successful web app, what else do we need to build to support the web app?
The ideal post will include off the shelf OSS scripts (assume the app is built in rails) that can be installed on the server to monitor server services and other things. It will also include a description of functionality for metrics that I will want to measure (e.g. conversions from free to paid users, etc.), feedback mechanism (to collect feedback from users).
There are stuff that I know I will need to be able to do (like easily processing refunds for customers). But there are stuff that I don't know that I will have to do, because this is my first web app.
I would like if the community can point me in the right direction...if not comments on this post, but providing links.
Applications are open for YC Winter 2023
