I asked awhile ago about websocket. I figured out exactly what my issue is with websockets. It is the fact that my server is CentOS6 and can only run Apache 2.2.15.
I've followed steps in https://docs.nodebb.org/en/latest/configuring/proxies/apache2.2.html to backport mod_proxy_wstunnel from apache 2.4 to apache 2.2, but when I run my site I still get
WebSocket connection to 'ws://mongo.dbc.hoathenguyen.com/socket.io/?EIO=3&transport=websocket&sid=bgi9Edghqhl_Gjl-AABk' failed: Error during WebSocket handshake: Unexpected response code: 400
This is what my Apache conf file looks like
LoadModule proxy_wstunnel_module modules/mod_proxy_wstunnel.so
allow from all
ProxyPass /socket.io/1/websocket ws://127.0.0.1:4568/socket.io/1/websocket
ProxyPassReverse /socket.io/1/websocket ws://127.0.0.1:4568/socket.io/1/websocket
ProxyPass /socket.io/ http://127.0.0.1:4568/socket.io/
ProxyPassReverse /socket.io/ http://127.0.0.1:4568/socket.io/
ProxyPass / http://127.0.0.1:4568/
ProxyPassReverse / http://127.0.0.1:4568/
Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong?
Also note mongo.dbc.hoathenguyen.com is a forum I'm testing with....the real forum is down because I noticed all the failed websocket calls from all the users were killing my Apache server and making my other sites useless. =(
