Connection Refused while using Curl-PHP

I have setup a nodejs app on my droplet and using pm2. I have assigned a domain to this droplet. When I use postman to test APIs I get correct response from my app. But when I call the same APIs using Curl-PHP it shows me connection refused. I am using port 3000.

(When I do the same set up by deploying app directly on app platform (not on droplet) I can access it using curl-php but then I face another issue of chrome not opening as I can not install chrome there. My app is using puppeteer.)

Hi @harshalsjoshi,

Have you allowed connections on port 3000 on your Firewall? This seem like a permissions to reach this port issue.

Additionally, I’ll recommend using Nginx as a reverse proxy and just using port 80 for this.
