Nextjs' documentation seems to be a bit sparse on how to self host my application.
After I run "npm run build" and the .next-folder is created, which files do I need to copy on my server?
I had the idea that the ".next"-folder is self contained, but I need at least the "node_modules" (for the next binary) and the package.json to be able to run "start".

you should either build on the server and run normaly, or use standalone and only need to make sure you have node for starting: https://nextjs.org/docs/app/api-reference/next-config-js/output#automatically-copying-traced-files
