Question

Configuring Laravel-websockets with ssl on nginx

I have been trying to connect websockets with laravel on nginx with ssl but i have been getting this error. It works fine on my local computer.

I have been getting this error in the console:

app.js:2 WebSocket connection to 'wss://www.site-name.com:6001/app/key?protocol=7&client=js&version=4.3.1&flash=false' failed: Error in connection establishment: net::ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED

I have tried many different things and been trying for 3 days.

Here are my files:

config/broadcasting.php

return [
