So, I'm having some issues with setting up NodeBB to run on a IIS webserver using it's reverse proxy feature. When I load the website, it works. I can see the forum and browse it however, I (and others) cannot log into it instead receiving the error message:
I have ARR (Application Request Routing) enabled, at least the proxy bit, with the default settings. I then set up a new site for the forum, set that up etc. I then added a "Reverse Proxy" like suggested in this thread (apparently a rewrite rule is all that's needed) to route the requests to the NodeBB application listening on the port "1337".
And yes, I have set up the
config.json to have the
url set to
https://forum.example.com (the same subdomain as on IIS).
Any help would be appreciated, I've been trying to get this to work for the past couple of days (I even had a hacked setup where Apache was the reverse-proxy for NodeBB) to no avail. And it seems the original thread is dead since the last activity was from May 2016.
Edit: I've even followed this article and installed the "WebSocket" role and stuff to the server but, still getting the error.
