Question

is it ok to deploy 2 applications in a single droplet?

I have two apps, api and frontend, I have uploaded in the same droplet, the frontend app is running on the port 3000 and the api is running on the 8000, my nginx config is:

{.....
	# root /var/www/html;
	root /home/testing-client/dist;

	# Add index.php to the list if you are using PHP
	index index.html index.htm index.nginx-debian.html;

	server_name _;

	location / {
		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;

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

but in my frontend app throw error to connect with api in localhost:8000

@enmisac Are you get any success?

the steps that I followed were:

  1. Connect with ssh to my droplet
  2. clone two repos -api with nodejs: https://github.com/TheEnmanuel23/testing
  1. install pm2 and nginx
  2. install packages of my 2 apps
  3. enable firewall with sudo ufw allow ‘Nginx HTTP’
  4. config nginx, I have added two lines:
  • root /home/CompleteTestGit/dist;

location / { proxy_pass http://localhost:3000; # First attempt to serve request as file, then # # as directory, then fall back to displaying a 404. try_files $uri $uri/ =404; }


my client app on port 3000 is working but no get data of the api on port 8000

Yes it is possible. Have you checked whether the API end is listening on port 8000 from inside the server?

try: telnet localhost 8000

You might need to install telnet (yum install telnet or apt-get install telnet). You also want to check the API’s error log for potential issues.
