Ahh, thanks. Okay, that makes sense now. It sounds like it's failing because of the special port. Since that port is sending directly to NodeBB and not through the Apache proxy, NodeBB does not know the SSL key, so it will fail the connection.
I think there used to be a way to feed the SSL Key path to NodeBB in config.json, but I don't see any docs on it anymore, and I'm not even sure if that would work.
I think your best bet is to try getting websockets to work through Apache2, there seems to be several methods even though there's no official support.
Hey guys. I recently picked up NodeBB (needed it for a client) and it was (still is) awesome. However, I need help with Plugin development. I could have sat down and dissect the docs (which seems scatterd BTW), but I am super duper busy. . . And I wish to develop the plugin ASAP. So I need a link or anything (blog posts, Youtube videos, books, etc) to get me started. A blog tutorial that outlines the plugin dev process and probably builds a sample plugin would be super helpful....
And BTW, my Nodejs skills is about 6 on a scale of 10, so a dummy approach would be highly appreciated.
I was using a dice roller plugin that has now since caused issues with posting in 1.5. I need the plugin updated to work with 1.5 and also I need a few tweaks made to the plugin while it's being updated.
Please PM me if interested and I can send you more details so you can send me a quote.
