How do I access my nodejs application running on Dokku without a port number?
I have my node.js application running successfully via Dokku. I can reach it via my app’s IP address http://22.214.171.124:49168.
Since it’s Dokku, the port number changes every time I deploy. We’ve setup a subdomain to point to it and it works successfully when we access http://subdomain.ourdomainname.com:49168 but the application fails if we try to just use http://subdomain.ourdomainname.com
I’ve followed a few tutorials and taken edited both my
/home/dokku/myapp/VHOSTS but nothing seems to take.
I can successfully SSH into my application with
$ ssh firstname.lastname@example.org so it seems to me that something is working the way it should.
