Connection Refused From Port allowed by UFW
I used this guide (https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/ufw-essentials-common-firewall-rules-and-commands#service-web-server) to open port 8000 on my droplet. I have a django application running on port 8000 and if I curl localhost, I get the home page of the app.
If I visit [droplet public ip]:8000 or try to curl it, I get ERRCONNECTIONREFUSED
I have done several searches for why this might be but cannot find much. I’ve triple checked that it’s listening on port 8000 using netstat.
Have I missed a step?
