Hi @sayantans643,

Can you share your Apache configuration files? Usually, you need to use it as proxy and pass it to port 8786.

Having said that, this needs to be configured directly in the virtual configuration file for the domain you are using.

One other thing I can think of on the top of my mind is that you make sure your port is actually opened to the public meaning in your firewall Incoming connections are actually allowed on this port.
