Load balancer proxy protocol with Express.js Node app
Anyone got a DO Load Balancer w/ Proxy Protocol to work with a Droplet running a Express.js website/API? As soon as I turn on proxy protocol, the LB droplet status goes unhealthy. I’ve tried adding
app.set('trust proxy', true); to my Express setup as per docs (https://expressjs.com/en/guide/behind-proxies.html) but no luck.
I really don’t want to run NGINX or Apache in-front of my Dockerized Node app.
