Question

How do I run multiple node servers on one droplet?

Hi,

I have a domain (referenced as mydomain.com) and I’m trying to run a couple of node apps on it like mydomain.com/node.

When I start the node server and og to mydomain.com/node, I get “Cannot GET /node”.

The node app is in the following folder: var/www/mydomain.com/node

My conf file in ‘sites-available’ for nginx is this:

server {
	server_name www.mydomain.com;
	return 301 $scheme://mydomain.com$request_uri;
}

server {
	listen 80 default_server;
	listen [::]:80 default_server ipv6only=on;

	root /var/www/mydomain.com/html;
	index index.html index.htm;

	# Make site accessible from http://localhost/
	server_name mydomain.com;

	location / {
		# First attempt to serve request as file, then
		# as directory, then fall back to displaying a 404.
		try_files $uri $uri/ =404;
	}

	location /node {
            proxy_pass http://localhost:3000;
				
            proxy_http_version 1.1;
            proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
            proxy_set_header Connection 'upgrade';
            proxy_set_header Host $host;
            proxy_cache_bypass $http_upgrade;
        }
}

Can you please tell me what I’m doing wrong?

Thanks
