@dravere Thanks a lot. Your advice is really helpful. And I solve this problem.
Hey guys have been trying to figure out what my problem is but havent been able to fix it.
I have followed the doc with installing nodebb with installing the apache patch and all but everytime I run it I get a 500 error and / or running with port just gives me chrome cannot connect.
My setup is using ISPConfig3, Debian7
nodebb log shows no errors:
info: [meta/css] Minifying LESS/CSS info: [sounds] Sounds OK info: [themes] Compiling templates info: [themes] Successfully compiled templates. info: NodeBB attempting to listen on: 127.0.0.1:4567 info: NodeBB is now listening on: 127.0.0.1:4567 info: [meta/css] Done. info: [meta/js] Compilation complete info: NodeBB Ready
I have added this to my vhost all within </VirtualHost>:
ProxyRequests off <Proxy *> Order deny,allow Allow from all </Proxy> ProxyPass /socket.io/1/websocket ws://127.0.0.1:4567/socket.io/1/websocket ProxyPassReverse /socket.io/1/websocket ws://127.0.0.1:4567/socket.io/1/websocket ProxyPass /socket.io/ http://127.0.0.1:4567/socket.io/ ProxyPassReverse /socket.io/ http://127.0.0.1:4567/socket.io/ ProxyPass / http://127.0.0.1:4567/ ProxyPassReverse / http://127.0.0.1:4567/
One thing I did notice while following the doc that:
sudo a2enmod proxy_html
that does not exist for me even after wstunnel patch. Would that be my issue?
@techabyte Can you access the forum directly (using the IP and port number)?
No I cannot it gives me same error that chome could not connect
Can you change the
That now works thanks!, I updated and changed vhost 127.... to 0.0.0.0 tho I am still getting 500 error when trying to access the webpage without the port..
@techabyte Not sure where to go with that one, as I've never tried setting up a NodeBB with apache proxy before... perhaps @planner can help?
Okay, I seem to have solved it I was looking back at the insall docs the section:
Enable the necessary modules sudo a2enmod proxy sudo a2enmod proxy_html sudo a2enmod proxy_wstunnel
Since I didnt have proxy_html (module doesnt exist) I did some searching on apache vhost proxy issues and saw a guide for something else that mentioned:
sude a2enmod proxy_http
enabled that restart apache now working I can access it via URL only
haha just a quick one I enabled emailer (local) for SMTP but once I click on the plugin to change settings it loads /admin/plugin/emailer-smtp but then changes to a 404. Is it bugged? (You are running NodeBB v0.4.3.) Everything else seems to be working
Oh, that's a little weird, perhaps it's a typo, and should read "proxy_http" instead of "proxy_html"?
As for the local emailer, perhaps you can install @psychobunny's fork?
npm install git+https://github.com/psychobunny/nodebb-plugin-emailer-local
