Question

Need help setting up SSL and ports

Hello guys, I need your help thinking a solution for my problem. I’m using two meteorJS apps on my droplet, one on port 80 (ssl 443) and the other one on port 420. I need to setup SSL for the 420 port app. I can’t use port 443 because it’s already bound to the first app. I’m using Meteor-UP to deploy to my droplet. Any ideas? Thanks!

change port in default config

for meteoar app you need to run

meteor npm install --save bcrypt 

first than

sudo meteor --port 80

or any port you need

Hi there,

Don’t run your applications directly on ports 80 and 443, use a web server, I recommend Nginx! Run your apps on random ports and then setup Nginx to listen on 80 and 443, and configure it to route the traffic to your applications. You can find very good tutorials on how to setup and configure Nginx on your droplet in the community!

Good luck!
