@ben-coyle2 Cool, cool, cool!
You persisted, teased out the gremlins and finally got things working. Good job! 👍
Now the real fun begins 🎆
New to nodeBB.
nodeBB version: 1.11.2
OS: Debian 9
Reverse proxy: Nginx
So inside of config.json for nodeBB, I've changed the url to the IP address of the box. This fixed me acccessing the box on my local LAN using it's private IP address. But in testing when I opened it up to the internet with port forwarding on my router, I get the error "Looks like your connection to NodeBB was lost" when I visit the forum.
What I'm trying to accomplish is have all the traffic go through nginx, and nginx make the local request to nodeBB.
Ideas? Not sure what's wrong here.
