  • Don't forget the ending quote on the base_url line πŸ™‚

  • @julian fixed. Still doesnt want to work.

  • What error shows up in your console when you attempt to use the proper base_url?

    and my config.json file is

    "use_port": true,
    "secret": "XXXXXX",
    "bind_address": "",

    "upload_path": "/public/uploads",
    "relative_path": ""

  • Hm... that closing quote at the end of base_url doesn't look right... try replacing it with a regular quote: "

  • @julian it works fine with he ip address. I changed it, plugged in the url again and I'm back to an Error 502 screen.

  • The error in your console is basically saying that it cannot parse the file as it is not valid JSON. I'd recommend trying to run node app --setup if your editor is introducing errant characters into the config.json file...

    Yeah i just use dreamweaver ftp because it's quicker, for me at least. okay i got the website to run while the base_url is
    The facebook issue remains the same, although the app is no longer pinging the ip address.

    Okay. I just deleted the url and domain from facebook's app. Retyped it in again. Hit save. Now it works. this would be rewarding if i knew why that solved it.

  • Nice πŸ˜„

    I'm just glad it's working. I'm guessing your dreamweaver doesn't insert a plain ol' quote? Seems like an odd thing for a code editor to not do, but I'll refrain from making any disparaging remarks against that IDE πŸ˜„

    Edit: @kevin, can we possibly feature your forum on our main website?

  • I was editing them in plain document mode. That was my bad. It didn't seem to make a difference. The endquote worked fine when we had the ip in the base url.

    And yeah! of course! I'm glad you like it.
