Hi there,

What I could suggest here is to use Nginx as a reverse proxy as described here:

That way your application will be running locally on http://localhost:9002 and the Nginx proxy will be forwarding the traffic from HTTPS to that internal port, for example:

server {
    location / {
        proxy_pass http://localhost:9002;
        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;

Let me know how it goes!

Hi @ankitlukhi,

Can you post here your Nginx conf for HTTPS? I would assume Let’s Encrypt installs the default config for 443 and does not take into account the reverse proxy you have configured.

Is working well without HTTPS???
