Apache Setup for Websockets

Posted September 15, 2016 15.2k views

I’m not able to connect with server with websockets. I believe it may be because of Apache. This is my setup. Is there anything I need to install for websockets to work on my server?

By default Apache does not support websockets. Websockets while using an http like handshake is a different protocol and generally when creating a web socket server you would not run it within a server like apache.

While there is not built in support, if you need Apache to handle websocket connections there is a 3rd party module designed to do just that.
