How do I go about uploading a site to a port on the IP?
I have a Laravel API I want to upload to a DigitalOcean droplet. I want to upload it on to a port on the IP. I am not sure if I am using the correct jargon when I say “port on the IP”
Basically, I want my API to connect when I type in
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:port where port is the port number.
I have made a .conf file in
/etc/apache2/sites-available. The code is below:
Listen xxx.xxx.xxxx.xxx:8037 <VirtualHost xxx.xxx.xxxx.xxx:8037> ServerName www.servername.com DocumentRoot "/var/www/html/hotelguide/public" <Directory /var/www/html/hotelguide/public> AllowOverride All Order allow,deny Require all granted Allow from all </Directory> </VirtualHost>
I used 8037 as a random port as some were already in use (its not my droplet, its a droplet I share with other people)
I have not changed any other file, nor added any other file either
